Geo 365: Sept. 29, Day 272: Sinnott Memorial Overlook

With Dana Hunter in the foreground, this is the view northward from Sinnott Memorial Overlook. It provides a good view of the caldera and lake, but also has a small museum of sorts, with artifacts from early to modern study of the lake, as well as some interpretive geology exhibits. Another memorable feature is the raised relief model of the park area, which provides a perspective you simply can't get from the ground. Llao Rock and Wizard Island make cameos in the distance. There are many spots with good views, but there's only one spot like this.
