Geo 365: Oct. 13, Day 286: Phantom Ship II

Another view of The Phantom Ship from the Kerr Notch pullout. An account focused mainly on the surprisingly complex botany and ecology of the island can be found here- though I'd take the geology with a grain of salt. As I mentioned earlier, more recent work seems to indicate the is the remains of one or more flows, rather than a dike- though from a distance, a dike certainly looks to be a reasonable assumption.
