October 16, 2017. I guess I’m excited at this new site. I just posted 5 new photos that I shot TODAY. Two are of springs gushing out of the middle of a basalt flow on the McKenzie River in Oregon –and three are of drowned trees in Clear Lake.
Those drowned trees are exciting, actually. They’re about 2700 years old –and died when a lava flow blocked the upper reaches of the McKenzie River to form Clear Lake. As Clear lake deepened behind the lava dam, it drowned the trees. The lake’s name is well-deserved: you can see the trees right down to the lake’s bottom.
Here’s one of the images –type “Clear Lake” into the Keyword Search to see the others! –Or type “Tamolitch” into the search to see the springs (or type “springs, Oregon” for that matter)
