Pumice Castle

Avatar

August 5, 2018

One of the impressive formations in Crater Lake National Park, this is a pumice outcropping that reminded me of the hoodoos in Bryce National Park, but that is where the similarities stop. Pumice Castle stands 1,300 feet above the lake surface. A thin layer of lava on the top of the pumice protects part of the pumice, and at the brakes, in the lava rock the pumice has eroded away forming columns.
