Picture of the Week: The Big Obsidian Flow at the Newberry National Volcanic Monument

8 10 2012

I just got back from a week of waterfall hunting in Central Oregon. While photographing waterfalls in the Newberry Volcanic Monument, I took a side trip to hike through the Big Obsidian Flow. It was amazing. Within the field of black lava glass there were a handful of intrepid trees growing through the cracks. Life, she finds a way. Click on photo for larger image.
