OK, so I'm a bit lazy this week.
Above the lava falls on the lava delta (the lava is flowing over the edge of a small cliff):
The falls. Scale is hard to judge; the text says the cliff is 12-15 meters (40-50 feet) high. Who would like to stand near the falls to give the picture some scale?

Earth Observatory has a Landsat Image of Bryce Canyon: I'll look for a good Bryce picture next week. There are a LOT of them.

Wow! It's really amazing to see the effects of lava flows. It makes it all look so perfect...
Who would like to stand near the falls to give the picture some scale?
That would definitely make you go "Aa!"
