The 500-m-wide Indian Pond hydrothermal explosion crater immediately north of the NE shore of Yellowstone Lake formed about 3350 years ago.  Deposits from this eruption extend 3 km from the crater and are up to 3-4 m thick.  Yellowstone Lake is seen at the top, with the highway leading to Cody at the bottom in this aerial view from the NE. Photo by Jim Peaco, 2001 (National Park Service).
