Places to Scatter Ashes in Oregon
Crater lake deepest lake in the United States, formed when the ancient volcano Mount Mazama collapsed during a an eruption over 7,000 years ago. The dormant volcano is a serene site to remember a loved one and reflect on the natural beauty and drama of the natural world. Park regulations request that scattering be done away from developed areas, buildings and waterways – meaning that scattering directly into the lake is not an option. However, elsewhere in the park may be a quieter, more private place for you to memorialize a loved one. Contact Crater Lake National Park for more information on legally scattering.Photo Credit
