Mammoth, CA. Mountains created by a super volcano. The pictures on this page were primarily taken in 3 distinct areas. First set were taken after hiking to the top of the ski runs at 4 am of the night sky. There were shooting stars visible to the naked eye about every 2 minutes. Next series were taken from Horseshoe lake area. The area of dead trees are caused by CO2 gasses being emitted through the ground. There are warnings around the lake about gas build-up hazards. The third series were taken from the middle of the volcano, some while still sitting in a natural hot-spring. Natural hot springs were present in a few locations. The first and fourth areas were within a few hundred yards of each other.
