The top of Inferno Cone, a large cinder cone in Craters of the Moon, is exposed to the weather on all sides, with little soil for those plants tenacious enough to grow there. It’s impressive that these evergreens manage to hang on through the harsh winters, and even more so that they’ve survived decades of those winters to reach this size.
