Around 760,000 years ago a supervolcano name" at Owens River Gorge - 1957914453787775846

Columnar jointing of the Bishop Tuff in the Owens Rover Gorge, Bishop, CA. Around 760,000 years ago a supervolcano named Long Valley Caldera erupted along the eastern Sierra Nevada, in the present-day Mammoth Lakes, CA area. This eruption created a 17x32 kilometer caldera and released around 600 cubic kilometers of magma in the form of pyroclastic (super heated gas, ash, and volcanic bolistics) material. This is an image of a section of the "Bishop Tuff"--the name we give the Long Valley Caldera volcanic deposits. These particular deposits are unique in that they form "columnar jointing," which is a rock texture that forms as the lava is cooling. The lava literally cracks into these pentagon-shaped columns; Similar to mud forming pentagon-shaped cracks as it dries up, lava can form pentagon-shaped cracks as it cools and contracts as its freezing into rock. Long Valley Caldera is still an active volcano, along with many other volcanic features in the region. Long Valley releases volcanic gases, supplies heat to the groundwater (creating many hot springs and supplying hydrothermal power for the area), and the surface ground of the caldera has swollen upwards.

Around 760,000 years ago a supervolcano named Long Valley Calde" at Bishop, California - 1953456720350847108

Bishop Tuff, from SUPERVOLCANO Long Valley Caldera, CA. Around 760,000 years ago a supervolcano named Long Valley Caldera erupted along the eastern Sierra Nevada, in the present-day Mammoth Lakes, CA area. This eruption created a 17x32 kilometer caldera and released around 600 cubic kilometers of magma in the form of pyroclastic (super heated gas, ash, and volcanic bolistics) material. This is an image of some of that erupted material, we now call the "Bishop Tuff." If you Google Earth or Google Maps (with satellite view) Long Valley Caldera, you can actually visually see the giant outline of the caldera, along with the eroded edge of the Bishop Tuff--which ends as a light-colored east-west trending streak right north of the town of Bishop. It follows the east-west trending, meandering Owens River. Long Valley Caldera is still an active volcano, along with many other volcanic features in the region. Long Valley releases volcanic gases, supplies heat to the groundwater (creating many hot springs and supplying hydrothermal power for the area), and the surface ground of the caldera has swollen upwards.

I'm very pleased to say that my photograph "Don't Come In" has been selected by @YourDailyPhotograph for exhibition and sale today. This image was made along Benton Crossing Road in Long Valley, near Mammoth Mountain. It reminds me of the measures a person in group quarters (like a dorm) must take to get a little privacy. #longvalleycaldera
