What looks to be a Lava flow turns out to be a controlled burn I stumbled upon during a hike. A lot of Non-Native plants were growing in this area and they decided to set fire hoping to rid the area of the invassive plants. They are hoping the Native plants too the area will come back. Thus - Reborn :)

Greetings Carl, Isn't it amazing how fire can be the spark for renewal of an old growth area. The grasses and plants come back stronger than ever. We were in Yellowstone for the big burn and the amount of acreage burned was staggering. We went back the next summer and the country side was so green it was hardly noticeable there had been such a big fire. Nice shot. Cheers, Rich
