Shattered

A fallen tree on top of Cerro Grande serves as a testament to the harsh conditions of the peak. This tree was torched in the Cerro Grande fire that started at this exact spot in 2000, and it has since been destroyed by a summer lightning storm. This is the far backcountry of Bandelier National Monument, just on the borders of the Valles Caldera and Santa Fe National Forest. The background is the South Rim of the Valles Caldera.
