CRATE 03

Crater Lake has long attracted the wonder and admiration of people all over the world. Its depth of 1,943 feet (592 meters) makes it the deepest lake in the United States, and the seventh deepest in the world. Its fresh water is some of the clearest found anywhere in the world. The interaction of people with this place is traceable at least as far back as the eruption of Mount Mazama. Founded May 22, 1902, Crater Lake National Park seeks to preserve these natural and cultural resources. Winter rules Crater Lake National Park. It can start closing seasonal roads in mid-October and last through June. An average year sees 44 feet of snow dropped on the park. With that in mind, things can change dramatically from the quiet of winter to hustle and bustle of summer. Crater Lake is filled with rain and melted snow that fell within the caldera basin. Crater Lake is isolated from surrounding streams and rivers, thus there is no inlet or outlet to the lake. Its primary input is from annual precipitation in the region. Average annual precipitation is 168 cm (66 in); average annual snowfall is 13 m (44 ft). It took approximately 250 years for the lake to fill to today’s level. The lake maintains its current level because the amount of rain and snowfall equals the evaporation and seepage rate. Lake level has varied only over a range of 5 m (16 ft) in the past 100 years. Crater Lake is known to be the deepest lake in the United States and the seventh deepest in the world. A maximum lake depth of 608 m (1,996 ft) was recorded by a group of USGS representatives in 1886 using piano wire and lead weight. The maximum depth of 589 m (1,932 ft) was established in 1959 by the USGS using sonar measurement. This depth is referenced at the surface elevation of 1,882 m (6,176 ft). But since its primary input source is dependent upon the climate, lake level is subject to abrupt changes. Crater Lake partially fills the collapsed caldera of the ancient Mount Mazama Volcano. The caldera is a bowl-shape depression of about 1,219 m (4,000 ft) deep.

up to sunlight on tall trees through the mesh windows of a tent, days spent exploring an area that was once a former volcano, and nights spent around a campfire with good friends and good food. We climbed up to the top of the mountain to get the full scope of the lake’s entirety, and then climbed down the edge to get to the level of its waters. And then, we jumped! Considering that the lake is so clean because it only holds water from rain and melted snow (there are no rivers or streams feeding it), the waters were pretty cold. However, the jump was worth it. It was an epic adventure throughout, and Oregon yet again continues to blow me away. I thought that I had gazed upon everything beautiful in nature as I have spent many years traveling thousands of miles to view the beauty spots of the earth, but I have reached the climax. Never again can the finest thing I have ever seen. Crater Lake is far above them all. “I came, I saw, I left,” could be the motto of many of the almost 500,000 annual visitors. From mid-July to mid-September, they ride dutifully around

the Rim Road and then move on. If you’re looking to interact with the landscape on a more personal level, you have some options, such as road biking around the Rim Road or day hiking to the summits of several peaks, including that of 760-foot Wizard Island in the middle of the lake. The area also offers superb cross-country skiing and snowshoeing opportunities in winter.

21st Century Poster Set

In Chicago 1929, one of the deadliest massacre’s in American history occured. Al Capone a notorious Italian gangster, sought to consolidate control by elminating many of his rivals. The outcome of this massacre marked the beginning of the end to Capone’s influence in Chicago.


ANNIHILATIO

VALENTINE

The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre remains the most notorious gangster killing of the Prohibition era. The massacre made Al Capone a national celebrity as well as brought him the unwanted attention of the federal government.

During the Prohibition era, gangsters ruled many of the large cities, becoming rich from owning speakeasies, breweries, brothels, and gambling joints. These gangsters would carve up a city between rival gangs, bribe local officials, and become local celebrities. By the late 1920s, Chicago was split between two rival gangs: one led by Al Capone and the other by George “Bugs” Moran. Capone and Moran vied for power, prestige, and money; plus, both tried for years to kill each other.
