Crater Lake, the other caldera…

oregon, outdoor

Don’t get me wrong, Crater Lake is an absolute icon. Not only does it attract thousands of tourists each year, in school for geology, it is the major tectonic feature Oregon is known for. HOWEVER! There is another caldera just an hour or so north of Crater Lake which contains not one but two lakes, Newberry Caldera. I must admit bias as I was a ranger for a summer season at Newberry. I guess I’m a little miffed, I think Newberry is a bit overlooked. Stay tuned for more about Newberry this summer…
