Geo 365: August 16, Day 228: Sand Mountain Crater

Looking below yesterday's panorama, and at a wider angle, we're seeing the summit crater of Sand Mountain. Young flows from this cinder cone and others in the area have created the rugged landscape in the area of McKenzie Junction and Clear Lake. The linear disposition of these cones is nowhere nearly as obvious from the ground as it is from aerial or satellite imagery.
