Photo Gallery

Snow-covered Knutson Lake (lower left) lies within a 1.5 x 2 km wide crater of Mount Dana. The 1354-m-high Dana is a small calc-alkaline volcano consisting of a central dome complex surrounded by an apron of volcaniclastic debris. Andesitic lava domes occur on the west crater rim and as a small mound east of Knutson Lake inside the crater. A major eruption from Mount Dana about 3840 radiocarbon years ago produced a block-and-ash flow that filled valleys south and west of the crater.
