Description

Bobby socks trees! Dead lodgepole pines near some hydrothermal areas look as if they are wearing bobby socks. The dead trees soak up the mineral-laden water. When the water evaporates, the minerals are left behind, turning the lower portion of the trees white. Fall turned the grasses a golden color, accentuating the scene.
