        Tourist At Crater Lake | Ken Burns: The National Parks

        In this image, a tourist sits contemplatively at the edge of Crater Lake, with Wizard Island visible in the middle of the lake. Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the nation with the clearest water in the world, became a national park in 1902, due to the tireless campaigning of William Gladstone Steel. An eight-inch disk lowered into its sky blue waters is still visible 142 feet below the surface. Source: Haprer's Ferry Center, Historic Photo Collection.
