These Before And After Pics Of Crater Lake National Park In Oregon Show Just How Much It Has Changed

Crater Lake is a PNW icon, and one of Oregon’s crown jewels. At 1,949 feet deep, it’s the deepest lake in the United States; a pristine pool of deep azure. The lake’s history is as deep as its waters, tracing back over 7,700 years to when a powerful eruption collapsed an ancient volcano, forming what we know as of today as Crater Lake, Oregon’s first national park. Today, Crater Lake National Park attracts upwards of 750,000 visitors each year, inviting all to revel in its resplendence, and there’s no better way to do this than along the iconic 33-mile Rim Drive. But there was a time when this amazing scenic route wasn’t there, and today we’re going to take a look at some historic pictures of the construction of Rim Drive in Crater Lake National Park.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
