Random Photos

Here are a bunch of random photos. Feel free to reload the page to see some more!

A random taste of photos:
An old decrepit abandoned building in the toxic dead tree zone near Mammoth Mountain. (It was probably an emergency snow cabin or something.) Natural CO2 outgassing from a magma body beneath Mammoth Mountain asphyxiated more than 100 acres of trees near Horseshoe Lake in the early 1990s. The gasses become concentrated to deadly levels in enclosed structures such as cabins. A brightly colored kayaker paddles by tufa towers in Mono Lake. Strange and wonderful geology in the northern part of Yosemite National Park, from Hwy 120.
Yellow wildflowers on stems that resemble rosemary. Fluffy white clouds crest a hill in Idaho. The shoreline of a murky green marsh.
A fallen tree near Mammoth Mountain. Natural CO2 emissions from a magma body beneath Mammoth Mountain asphyxiated more than 100 acres of trees near Horseshoe Lake in the early 1990s. This is either Lake Mary or Lake George. They\'re very close to each other. The still water of a salt marsh reflects sky and clouds.
A fallen coconut at the mouth of the Wailua River, where it meets the Pacific Ocean. A vacant paper wasp nest held in my fingertips. The nest is constructed of open hexagonal cells in which the young develop. A seagull swims in the shallows near tufa at Mono Lake.
Peacock showing off his beautiful plumage to the ladies. Two people standing in the distance on a rocky coastal outcropping, looking at the ocean. A fence constructed of driftwood, seaweed, and wire on the beach.
A pine tree near Mammoth Lakes. (If anyone knows the species, please let me know and I\'ll add the info!) Yellow and green clusters of flowers resemble berries on a leafy bush. Painted Desert landscape with a cloud-dotted blue sky.
Red rock towers in Sedona. \ Bright pink flowers gather around a fencepost.  (If anyone knows the flower species, please let me know and I\'ll add the info!)
Petrified wood in this desolate landscape has been fossilized and turned to stone. A knot in this tree resembles a strange eye. Ground squirrel, standing on a post with a blurred background (portrait orientation).
Perrine Bridge over the Snake River Canyon in Twin Falls, Idaho. Painted Desert within the Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona. Yellow sunflower.
Bright yellow-green leaves against a clear blue sky. Morro Rock ringed by mist, with greenery in the foreground. A black and white spotted beetle on a morning glory leaf.  (If you know the species, please let me know and I\'ll add the info!)
