Steam rises from a geothermal well at the top of a lava-dome complex of the Steamboat Hills geothermal field in west-central Nevada south of Reno. U.S. Highway 395 traverses the valley beyond the trees in the foreground. This is the site of the Steamboat Resort, which dates back to the 1860s, when it was frequented by miners working on the nearby renowned Comstock Lode. The Carson Range forms the ridge on the horizon.
