    If you look at a relief map, you can see where that hot spot has moved, or where the crust has moved over it, over a long period of time.
    Look just to the west and south of the current location, and follow the valley to the southwest and the back northwest to a little west of Boise Idaho.
    I suspect it will eventually move on east-northeast into Montana. Hopefully not in the immediate future, though.

    Oh gawd, LarsMac, I'm sooooo glad I don't live in America ! Isn't a huge volcanic eruption at Yellowstone, millions of years ago, responsible for originally forming the North American land mass in a 'flood basalt' event ?

    I wouldn't like to live anywhere near Yellowstone at the moment! Hope you don't live too close, Saint.
