Pebble Creek memories

Posted by Callan Bentley

This summer is the first summer in half a decade that I won’t be spending time camping at Pebble Creek campground, in the Lamar Valley of northeastern Yellowstone (“America’s Serengeti”). While I’m very excited to be nesting and exploring my new home in the Fort Valley, it does make me a bit wistful to think I won’t be waking up to see this lovely sight this year:

That’s morning light on cliffs of Absaroka volcanics: lava flows and lahars preserved as a layered stack of Eocene-aged eruptions.
