Geo 365: Sept. 17, Day 260: Wizard's Breach

From the pullout between Hillman Peak and The Watchman, Wizard Island dominates the view. I've long been fascinated by the breach flow from that cinder cone. The hummocks and little islands seem (to me at least) to suggest that the lake level was lower at the time of that eruption. Above and a little to the right of Wizard Island, Kerr Notch can be seen on the opposite rim. The peak to the left of that feature is Mount Scott, the highest point in the park.
