Waters in a bay of Yellowstone Lake and a snow capped mountain peaks of Mount Sheridan elevation of 10,298 feet is a prominent mountain peak in the background.
Yellowstone Lake is the largest lake at high elevation in North America. In fact it is the second largest fresh water lake in the world that is above 7,000 ft. It is a natural lake, situated at 7,733 ft. above sea level.
At about 132 square miles, it is roughly 20 miles long and 14 miles wide with estimated 115 miles of shoreline. It is frozen almost half the year. From research cameras what would be found on the bottom is similar to what is found on land in Yellowstone; geysers, hot springs, and deep canyons. Researchers found the deepest spot was a canyon just east of Stevenson Island which was 390 feet deep.The average depth is 140 feet. Bears are frequent visitors along the lake and its 100 plus tributaries. All my art is generated digitally from my original photographs. All images are copyrighted Wildlife Fine Art.
