Several Awesome Natural Wonders In United States

When you've traveled to the United States from East to West you think there is nothing that can amaze you anymore, you've seen all the most beautiful things. Yet you get to Oregon and realise you have never seen the place on earth that combines a deep, pure lake, so blue in color; surrounding sheer cliffs, almost two thousand feet high; two picturesque islands; and a violent volcanic past.
The morning light had just appeared when we started the journey. Wes hare, our host community, have come to pick us up at 7:30 am. That morning, we were very excited to explore the roads leading to southern oregon. towards one of the most amazing places in the world. They calls it crater lake. It is beyond my imagination. It is one of the awesome natural wonders of the world.
Along the way to the crater lake, we passed various places. The first place is the University of Oregon in eugene. This is the place where Wes hare has studied at university. After looking at the moment, we continue the journey. Few kilometer later we stopped at the place where Wes hare has his first experience as a city manager. The name is Oakridge . Here, there is a pleasant place for recreation they called Oakridge greenwaters rest and recreation area. The next stopover is the Willamette fish hatchery. The place where the local fish are cultivated. Not for consumption, but rather to be released to the river. In this place we see 8-foot white surgeon and there were 7-8 pound trouts.

Odell Lake

Not far from the Willamette fish hatchery, we stopped at Odell Lake. If you love fishing, this place is the champion. There are Several developed campgrounds around Odell Lake, as well as boat camps that allows sailing, wind surfing, water skiing and fishing. In this place you can see the Diamond Peak stands as a sentinel over Odell Lake, one of the blue giants of the Deschutes National Forest. Not far from Odell Lake, you will found the second highest waterfalls in Oregon. They called a salt creek falls. Its located west of Willamette Pass, just off of Highway 58. To get to this point you'd have to walk along the road from the developed Viewpoints. The history of this place begins when Glaciers scoured the valley out during the last Ice Age, then following Reviews their retreat, lava flows filled in a portion of the valley, creating the narrow canyon walls composed of columnar basalt that are now seen at the falls. Views are afforded all along the canyon rim, from the brink of the falls to the base of the falls.

Crater Lake

When the time has shown at 1 pm, finally we arrived at the crater lake. Immediately, we rushed out from the car to a place of immeasurable beauty. In this place there is a snow. It is very pleasant to play in the snow. in our country there is no snow because it has a tropical climate. Crater Lake is a caldera lake in the western United States, located in south-central Oregon. It is the place on earth that combines a deep, pure lake, so blue in color; surrounding sheer cliffs, almost two thousand feet high; two picturesque islands; and a violent volcanic past. The lake partly fills a nearly 655 m-deep caldera that was formed around 7,700 (± 150) years ago by the collapse of the volcano Mount Mazama. There are no rivers flowing into or out of the lake; the evaporation is compensated for by rain and snowfall at a rate such that the total amount of water is replaced every 250 years. It is the deepest lake in the United States With a depth of 1.949 feet (594 m). In my country, we also have a caldera lake. We call Lake Toba. it has an island almost the size of Singapore in its center. At over 1,145 square kilometers, and a depth of 450 meters, Lake Toba is actually more like an ocean. Lake Toba is the site of a massive supervolcanic estimated eruption occurred 69,000 to 77,000 years ago. Crater lake and Lake Toba is the two lakes of God's grace is amazing.
Time shows past 1:30 pm. It's time for us to go back to our homestays. On the way, Wes hare led us to a place called rogue gorge. You will see ancient lava tubes, waterfalls, and many other interesting features, all Described to you by informative signs along the trail interpretative. The Rogue River Gorge is located just south of the intersection of routes 62 and 230 just west of Crater Lake Oregon. Our last stop was to the old-growth grove Hackleman-Willamette National Forest. You may feel dwarfed by some trees, Several are more than 500 years old, and have survived floods, fire, and wind storms. Time has shown at 8:00 pm. It's time we got back to the hotel. Many lessons from God's creation that I get on this trip. A beautiful masterpiece of divine creation.
