The lone tree on top of Inferno Cone
Just before sunset, we hiked up Inferno Cone, a cinder cone near the center of Craters of the Moon. The trail heads straight up the side of the cinder cone and looks short - until you get to the shoulder in the hill about halfway up. There is a great view of the area from the summit, which is in the red rocks where I stood to take this image. This lone tree is visible on top of this cinder cone from all over the park. There are some trees below it on the hillside and some remains of other similar trees on the summit, but it is the only one presently on top. This image was taken with my 24mm lens with an exposure of 1/200 seconds at f/5, ISO 400.
