Crater Lake Oregon is the second-deepest lake in North America and the ninth deepest in the world, at 1,949 feet. One World Trade Center, the tallest building in the United States, would be nearly 200 feet under water if it were placed at the deepest point in the lake. There are no tributary rivers or streams into this lake, which lies in the crater of a volcano that collapsed 7,700 years ago. All of the water in the lake has fallen as either rain or snow, or has flowed off of the edges of the crater. This accounts for the deep blue water of the lake.
