this USGS page). It's that pointy dome near the middle of the summit amphitheater. The apron extending down the slope below it consists of pyroclastic flow deposits from repeated collapses of domes that grew during that eruptive phase. Timberline Lodge, our ultimate destination on this hastily re-planned day, sits near the bottom of that apron. It's a gorgeous building and area, so it's a little sad to consider that, in the event of new eruptive activity here, it will likely be utterly destroyed.
