Aug. 22, 2017: A life-size mammoth sculpture at the entrance of The Mammoth Site of Hot Springs, South Dakota. A pre-historic sinkhole trapped the mammoths thousands of years ago. In 1974 mammoth bones were discovered at the site. By 1980 the site was preserved, a non-profit established, and excavation begun. By 2016, the remains of 61 mammoths had been recovered.
My thoughts on images past and present.
