Horseshoe Lake Tree Kill / Mammoth Lakes & Eastern Yosemite Trip (July 20-24, 2009 )











Horseshoe Lake at Mammoth Lakes is a beautiful little lake surrounded by trees. The northern side of the lake consists of hundreds of dead trees caused by volcanic gasses (CO2) coming up through the ground. The following website is very interesting reading...if you are interested.

The last photograph shows mostly living trees on the south side of the lake.
