Photo Gallery

Holocene cinder cones of the Barkhatnaya Sopka volcanic field overlie a plateau 14 km north of Viliuchik volcano. The cinder cones are sitting on an uplifted block of eroded Miocene-Pliocene rocks. Mt. Barkhatnaya ("Velvet Mountain"), which formed 3000-4000 years ago, is at the left, and the reddish hill at the right is an early Holocene cinder cone. The white hill in the center between Barkhatnaya and the early Holocene cinder cone is a part of an eroded rhyolitic sub-volcanic body.
