"Fly-by of shaded-relief bathymetry and surrounding mountains of Crater Lake Oregon. The colored region is the lake floor whereas the gray region shows the surrounding mountains. The lake is approximately 9-km wide east to west. The flight approaches from the south, flies around the lake floor in a clockwise direction, passes over Wizard Island, Merriam Cone, the deep East Basin, the Central Platform, and Rhyodacite Dome."
