If Crater Lake were located anywhere else, it would surely rate as one of the region's top visitor attractions. As it is, this scenic gem remains one of the Cariboo's best kept secrets. Despite the name, the lake does not owe its origins to a wayward meteor. The eroded canyon through which the Rayfield River plunges to the lake, and the layers of basaltic rock, are linked to the same dynamic chain of events that created Painted Chasm.
