Dalmation Mountain...

 

The Bonito Lava Flow covered in snow, with O'Leary Peak in the background...

This place is amazing, when you are there and try to imagine it as it was.....The powers unleashed must have been awesome, in the true sense of the word...( not coffee Ell' smile )
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it, though. It IS so awesome ( ! ) smile No - coffee is very nice! smile

"900 years later, Sunset Crater is still the youngest volcano on the Colorado Plateau"....
Don't you just love it that it still is there and I so love your title.
I like this picture a lot, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - Geography is so fun!! Thank you, Astrid!

The snow adds a whole new dimension to this landscape..
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It really shows it off. The lava rocks, when dry are kind of boring in a photo - even if remarkable in life!
Magnifique !!
Merci
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Claudine!

Peppered with trees
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - and the foreground is black lava rock... it looks really boring when dry...

The mix of trees and snow gives this an even more dramatic appearance. I just had to look at a map to see where this was; I've driven past it without knowing.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - I loved that speckly look the snow / trees / lava rock gave the whole scene!
Right - you have to drive into the park to have any idea!

It gives a fine contrast in black and white.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Chad!
I can certainly see why this mountain might be named thusly. Gorgeous shot.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is actually the name I gave it when I converted the shot to B&W! smile I immediately thought the foreground black lava rocks with snow looked like dalmation markings... and then I thought the mountain might lend to the title as well! smile
Great shot, it's a geological wonderland round your way.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Brian! It is indeed, Brian!! Everywhere you go... smile
Wow, Elizabeth, seeing the lava flow and O'Leary Peak covered with a blanket of snow as you've captured it here gives it another dimension
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Beverly! It was a bit surreal!

Fitting name for the posting smile I can even see the lookout tower up there. Must be a lonely life. Great picture.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Louis!
A fire tower guard wrote a book about the life... Frank found it to be a very good read:

A very graphic-art-like shot!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Tom! Not my usual - but I liked it!

A gorgeous view that explains easily why it was named so! Flagstaff has more to see than I thought. smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Steven! We've a wealth of geological treasures! smile Let us know if you come back this way for a visit! We know all the best cafe's, too!
