Electric Peak, Yellowstone National Park

Posted on | Shot on at 08:23:15

Electric Peak in Yellowstone National Park. Just south of Gardiner, it is the highest peak in the Gallatin Mountain Range. The name Electric Peak came from the first ascent in 1872 when a lightning storm caused electrical discharges from the hands and hair of the climbers.
