Geo 365: May 24, Day 144: Parasitic Cones

Looking roughly southeast from the top of Paulina Peak, on the south rim of Newberry Volcano, you can see a few of the numerous parasitic cones scattered about its flanks. I'm under the impression that most of these are cinder cones, but it wouldn't surprise me if a few of them are of compositions other than basalt.

Photo run through Paint.Net's autolevel routine. August 21, 2011. FlashEarth location.

Followup: I realized after posting this that you can see Fort Rock (More on Fort Rock if you look through the Geo 365 posts of the previous day) off in the distance, which is likely the forgotten reason I actually took this particular shot. It's just above the second tree from the right bottom. Here's a crop with the contrast ramped way up, and the brightness lowered a good way, to try and peer through the haze a bit more clearly.
