If you travel bucket list doesn’t include Oregon’s Crater Lake, it should. It might be wise not to wait too long due to changes that appear to be occurring being carefully observed by scientific scholars and analysts as well as speculation generated by those who believe that the end of earth as we know it is happening.

Known for its beautiful, clear blue water, Crater Lake is America’s deepest and the fifth deepest lake in the world. The lake itself is almost two thousand feet deep with its formation occupying 2,148 feet of land. Crater Lake is believed to be the result of the collapse of a volcano known as Mount Mazama and to have surfaced some 7,000 years ago. There are no waterways flowing from it.

Be sure not to miss three of its unique features one of which is a huge tree stump affectionately known as “Old Man of the Lake.” There appear to be two islands named Wizard Island and Phantom Island.

For the past one hundred and fifteen years, the lake has been a part of Oregon’s only state park essentially established for preservation of Crater Lake. Scientists and historians believe that the lake is actually the eruption of a volcano believed to have been silent for some 7,000years and just lately exhibiting signs of possible activity.

Since all accommodations and convenience services do not operate during the winter months, the only activity available during the winter is guided snowshoe excursions which last approximately two hours and cover about two miles of moderate terrain.

Making a Memorable but Cheap Trip to the US West Coast

The United States is one of the largest countries in the world with so many attractive destinations that it is impossible to fit them all in a travelling plan. Frequented by visitors throughout the year, the west coast is one of the most popular parts of the US. One of the main reasons for its adoration by visitors is its vibrant cities and different but breathtaking landscapes. While many people spend years piling up loads of money for their west coast trip, you can have a time of your life at an incredibly low cost.

Low-rates Accommodation

A big chunk of money spent on any trip goes to accommodation. There are many prestigious hotels in the west coast but you have to dig deep in your pockets to pay for their services. At the same time, there are many motels offering excellent services at a low price. Nevertheless, it is not easy to pick just the right one, and even harder to try not to find yourself in an outright dump if you have never tried them before.

A Short Distance from Attractions

According to Huffington Post, some of the little-known hotels offer as excellent service as some of the largest ones. They come with additional benefits including nearby restaurants and nightlife hubs as well as attractions, such as the Cabrillo National Monument, Crescent Bay, Salt Creek, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and art galleries. They include Ocean Park Hotel in San Francisco, Dolphin Motel in San Diego, Newport Channel Inn in Newport Beach, Three Rivers Resort in Forks and View Crest Lodge in Trinidad.

A trip to the US west coast is an unforgettable. However, it doesn’t have to leave a big hole in your pockets. You can easily avoid the crippling costs by conducting a bit of research on available accommodation before you set off. Additionally, make a list of the cities and attractions you would love to visit most.
