Yellowstone Lake

The beaches on Yellowstone Lake have always fascinated me. They are built of mixed sand and gravel and come in a combination of eroding bluffs and assorted barrier beaches. I'm convinced (without much serious investigation) that they may be impacted by medium-term changes in not only absolute lake level but in relative lake level (Yellowstone, particularly here at the north end of the lake, rises and falls with the underlying magma pool).


Here's a post from more than a decade ago: Yellowstone Lake: July 2007.

Photos here are from late September 2019.
