Talk about it being difficult to find a photo without comments; wow! Actually, I'm pretty excited to have found this picture. It's a work of art in it's own right, and I'd like to add it to the shots that go into "circulation."

Thanks, Hank. My husband went on to look at a cave and I didn't want to walk that far, so I stayed to look more closely at the amazing things around me--rocks, and also little plants living as precarious an existence as those trees of yours. This is my favorite of the shots I got.

Cheers, Marilyn

Craters of the Moon National Monument is the context for these remarkable volcanic rocks.

Dear Marilyn, the structure and the colors are so realistic! One of the best lava pictures! Regards Paul.

Thank you, Paul. You have an excellent collection, and I shall enjoy exploring it further. Greetings, Marilyn

What you have here is a picture of where a Yellowstone hot spot was 300,000 years ago. The earths crust moves from west to east and the sub-teranian culdura remains fixed placed. So at one point in time this was a massive hot lake by the looks and was yellowstone. Very rare as it is not broken up but intact less the hot water. The magma resavore used to reside as far west as Mt Raineer millions of years ago. But what do I know. It's just simple logic.
