Examination of Crater Lake

The Newport Mercury

September 4, 1886

The examination of Crater Lake, in Oregon, gives scientific evidence of the appropriateness of its name, and shows it to be in the heart of a mountain hollowed but by volcanic action. If one of these days the cinder cones that are on the bottom should send up fire again things will be lively in that region, and Uncle Sam will possess the biggest hot bath in creation.
