Ghost Trees of Horseshoe Lake

Horseshoe Lake is near Mammoth Lakes, CA in the eastern Sierra Nevada. Because of volcanic activity, carbon dioxide is forced up through the soil killing many of the trees near the lake. They have turned white in their death and many have twisted shapes. Because of their appearance I call them ghost trees.
