Crater Lake is the debut album from Twin Cities band Rogue Valley.

Throughout the album, a sense of migration, wonderment, and optimistic melancholy weaves itself between starkly beautiful pastoral imagery, reflecting the band's experiences touring the vast stretches of the West coast. The songs and stories merge events and memories like an embellished memoir, blurring the lines between fiction, reality, memory and perception. Crater Lake is the first album in a series of four, each to be released in consecutive seasons.
