Shifting Hotspot

Image ID: 15-0998c

As the magma hotspot in the Yellowstone caldera continues to shift, the delicate earth's crust is transformed. In this area of the Lower Geyser Basin, what was once a thriving spruce forest has become too warm to sustain the trees. The stark trunks coupled with the bleached base of the trees provide for an interesting abstract.
