Geo 365: Oct. 16, Day 289: Looking Northeast

Looking northeast from somewhere on Crater Lake's eastern rim, the low mound on the far middle horizon is the shield of Newberry Volcano- the high point right in the middle is almost certainly Paulina Peak. You can also get a sense of the flat, gentle-gradient plain of the feature I refer to as the "east side apron." The apron has formed because deposition rates of pumice and ash from High Cascades eruptions exceeds rates of erosion and incision in most places.

Photo run through Paint.Net's autolevel routine for haze and contrast. August 18, 2011. Location unknown, beyond as described in text.
