The forested scoria cone in the left of the photo is Schreibers Meadow Cone on the SE flank of Mount Baker. It erupted about 9,800 years ago, producing a scoria deposit and a lava flow that traveled 12 km to the present location of Baker Lake. The ridge in the foreground is a glacial moraine from Mount Baker known as the "Railroad Grade." Photo by Lee Siebert, 1981 (Smithsonian Institution).
