Wizard Island peeks out from the deepest lake in the USA, found in the now-dormant volcano Mount Mazama. Named for its resemblance to a sorcerer’s headpiece, the 233-metre-high cinder cone emerged as the volcano’s crater began to fill with rain and snowmelt after an eruption, until it reached a depth of 589 metres. Hikers can traverse almost 145 kilometres of trails at Crater Lake National Park, lined with mountain hemlock, Shasta red fir and several species of pine, including whitebark, lodgepole and majestic ponderosa. Animal life is also diverse, with black bears, bobcats and marmots among the inhabitants.
