This tinted photo of Devil's Backbone with Llao Rock in the background was created by Fred Kiser, likely early in his career. He would have been standing about 100 feet up the slope from the lake, which meant he transported his heavy camera equipment by boat and carried it up the slope. Lava dikes were formed by molten lava that created and filled cracks as it forced its way up through the rock. The cooled lava was later left exposed by the erosion of the surrounding material.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
