Specimen Ridge Windstorm
$100.00 – $1,500.00
Specimen Ridge is the divide between the Yellowstone River and the lower
Lamar River. Extensive fossil forests are preserved in the prehistoric
volcanic ash and mud flows piled here. Cold-hardy lodgepole pine and
Douglas-fir now grow on top of more than two hundred types of petrified
trees, including subtropical species such as magnolia, maple, and avacado.
The high, swirling snow blowing off his subalpine ridge illustrates how
changeable and dynamic our earth is.
