Specific: Steam

The Daily post is all about Specific.

Yesterday we drove to Carson City, NV. The mountains all around us is white and beautiful. It looked like a Christmas card scene.

I saw this one mountain letting off steam. A big cloud of it was going into the sky, making clouds.

To be specific, this is a volcano. Steamboat Springs is a volcanic field of rhyolitic lava domes located 20 km SSE of Reno, Nevada. It is between 2.5 and 1.1 million years old and consists of lava domes and flows.
There are no recent eruptions, but it is hydrothermally very active.

It steams all the time but it really shows up when it is cold, like in Yellowstone. I think the power company traps the steam to make power.

  1. Those vulanos with rhyolithic lava give violent eruptions due to the viscosity of this lava. Fortunately the vulcano look sleeping excepted for the hot water.
    Interesting post, Connie
