Lakes of Raoul Caldera

Lakes of Raoul Caldera

Looking across the Raoul caldera you can see Green Lake (foreground), with Blue Lake behind. The hill in the centre is the remnant of a pumice cone formed during an eruption in about 1650 CE. It was partly destroyed during eruptions in 1870 and 1964, and Green Lake fills the hole that was left.
