In the Shadow Of...

...The Great Volcano

 

The community of Gray Mountain lies in the San Francisco

volcanic field. Another view of the north side of the mountain. 

We live in Flagstaff, which is on the south side.

A wonderful image, Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ray!
I like the top image a lot.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Jacquelyn! I'm glad you do! I love that silhouette!
Ce volcan se réveille-t-il parfois ?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: The last eruption of the big volcano was 6 million years ago - but to the east of here (left of the photo) is a cinder cone that erupted less than 1000 years ago. Another eruption is likely to be small and not cause much damage.
Nice shots, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, sir!
Presumably long dead/quiet/extinct Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: The big mountain... about 6 million years... but there's a vent to the left of this that erupted less than 1000 years ago... !

Is the volcano still active - it looks like a sleeping giant.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's been sleeping for about 6 million years! smile But there is a vent just to the East that erupted less than 1000 years ago.

I'm always in awe that billions of years after the formation of Earth then the core is still molten and not very far below the surface either - and not far from you inn Yellowstone!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: That's right! People ask "what will you do when Yellowstone erupts?!" Ummm... die.... ?!

Its a bleak but beautiful landscape.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Very true!
Wonder where they got the name Gray Mountain.smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile dunno!
Two great shots once again Elizabeth. Did you walk straight over the top to get here from your side or did you take the long way round smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh we walked right across the top! smile Funny, Brian!
wow, just wow. How fortunate you are living there. (^__^)
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much Alkaterina! We are lucky indeed!
