Good rainy morning from Portland. Detail from a view of Mount Talbert. Heading into the studio soon. Yesterday, I began my website updates with new paintings. I'm about half done. Go take a sneak peak. I will finish up later tomorrow. #fogforest#rainyday ☔ #cindercone#mountalbert#evergreens
My 2018 Kona Process 153 AL/DL sunning herself infront of Corbierre Lighthouse.
Only two upgrades currently - a pair of Nukeproof Neutron Evo pedals and a Ergon sport saddle.
I'm a big singletrack fan, so wanted a long and slack twenty niner to cut through that cliff path chunk. She certainly hasn't disappointed yet, inspiring a wealth of confidence when pointed south.
Additionally, as a kid I always wanted a Kona, and had a picture of a cinder cone on my wall!
The stunning yet amazingly underrated painted dunes of Lassen are very unique for many reasons. Rather than being made of sand, they are made from layers of oxidized pumice (volcanic ash) that fell atop still hot lava beds, giving them their brilliant colors, yet whenever I go I’m always the only one around.

Happy New Year! Can you believe it's a new year AND a new decade? Crazy! We have a lot to look forward to at Lava Beds, like our 100th anniversary of becoming Lava Beds National Monument- in 2025! It will be here before you know it. We will continue to enjoy beautiful sunrises, sunsets, rainbows, our over 800 lava tubes, lots other volcanic features, and cultural history. And share it all with with you! What are you looking forward to?

Which translates as the "rice mound" - in legend the local deity left a pile of rice on the ground, taking a pinch off the top to feed locals. In actuality this is a volcanic cone in the Aso Caldera, a monster depression caused when the Aso volcano collapsed in on itself during a cataclysmic volcanic eruption ~80,000 years ago. That was the fourth large Holocene eruption at Aso and the greatest- ash and pumice from Aso-san have been found across Japan. It has left behind a caldera with a circumference of 80 miles and crater walls up to 1000ft high (seen in the distant background of the first and fourth pics). Today more than 70,000 people call the caldera home. Komezuka is a cinder cone volcano within the caldera, it formed ~2000 years ago from a series of strombolian eruptions. This is a coughing and spluttering style of eruption, throwing up blebs of lava and ash that cool in various ways, shapes and sizes collectively known as tephra. The tephra piles up on the spot making a fairly perfect cone with a stereotypical crater at the summit. The current active crater in the caldera is on Mt. Naka, it has erupted several times since these photos were taken in 2012. The caldera is carpeted in beautiful green grasslands thanks to the centuries old Noyaki annual controlled burning that returns organic nutrients to the mineral rich volcanic soil and inhibits the growth of trees and shrubs.

🇬🇧Arita Cone. Salar de Arizaro is a large salt flat of the Andes in north-western Argentina. It is the sixth largest salt flat on earth and the second largest in Argentina. An almost perfect cone, it rises unexpectedly in the middle of the salt pan. A particular characteristic of it is a conical hill named Cerro Cono (or Cono de Arita). It is a volcanic cinder cone and 122 meters above the Salar. .
🇹🇷Arita Konisi, Arjantin’in KB’sında bulunan Salar De Arizaro’da bulunur. Salar De Arizaro dünyadaki altıncı, Arjantin’deki ise en geniş ikinci tuz düzlüğüdür. Tuz düzlüğünü diğerlerinden ayıran en önemli özelliklerden bir tanesi, beklenmedik bir şekilde ortasında yükselen konik tepedir. Bu koniye Arita Konisi adı verilmektedir. Koni volkanik bir sinder konisi yapısında olup, tuz düzlüğünden yüksekliği 122 metredir.
(ENG) Montañas del Fuego on Lanzarote Island (Canary Islands, Spain), or fire mountains, are volcano craters. They are situated over a fissure that penetrates deep into the earth's crust, along which the lava can reach the surface.
(TR) Kanarya takım adalarındaki Lanzarote adasında bulunan Montañas del Fuego namı diğer Ateş Dağları. Burası birçok kraterden oluşan bir volkanik alandır. Kraterler bir çatlak boyunca yüzeye çıktığı için bu şekilde ardarda sıralanırlar
From the car it looked like a mirage, blurredly wobbling in the distance from the heat reflecting off of the desert. As we drew in closer however it was an even stranger site; a giant cinder cone isolated in the #SalarDeArizaro salt flat towering at roughly 400 feet tall. Our guide explained that it’s actually a minor volcano, one that never had the power to erupted. It’s considered sacred to the local Aymara people and a surreal geological feature to see at any angle. I shot this vertical pano here from roughly 1,500 feet above the desert floor with a @djiglobal phantom 4 pro, seeing it from this unique vantage really shows the isolation and contrast of this incredible #cinderCone ! @danahrichardson@jacadatravel
