Crater Lake - "The Old Man Of The Lake" is a historical marker collectible in Days Gone.


Historical Marker found near the rim of Crater Lake.


The Old Man of the Lake is a 30 foot tree trunk within the waters of Crater Lake, that has been present since around 1896. The cold water of Crater Lake has allowed for the slow decomposition of the wood, nearly preserving it. The stump was first noted by Joseph S. Diller in his publication of the first geology of Crater Lake in 1902, and carbon dating places it around 450 years old. The tree itself is most likely hemlock. While it's unknown where the Old Man came from, it does move around the lake quite consistently, bobbing along the surface of the water.
