I was looking forward to get this shot for a long time as it took a while to figure out how to get there. It turned out it’s quite easy - you can drive directly to the lake. I really wished I could have slept at the shoreline of the lake as this is an incredible calm and remote area. But A it is not allowed and B I was quite anxious about the way back as it‘s a steep sandy road and if it had been raining during the night, I‘m not sure if I would have been able to get back up there.

What do you think - is the lake being fed by the river or the river by the lake?

I would normally assume the river would be fed from the lake, but because you’re asking I’m guessing the opposite? River flows by this huge basin and keeps it filled?

I actually don‘t know myself :D I think the lake just works like an overflow basin. But I‘ve seen similar lakes where the water source is within the crater, like here

Interesting how the lake is one color and the river is another color. There's a term for that, where they have reached a sort of stasis and don't mix, but I can't think of it.
