Earthquake Lake

Earthquake Lake in Southwestern Montana was caused when a landslide triggered by a 7.3 magnitude earthquake blocked the Madison River in 1959. The day this photo was taken the area was shrouded with smoke from three large wildfires in and around Yellowstone Park making the scene very surrealistic.
