Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-03056
Lava flows in the foreground originated about 1,500 years ago from the South Belknap scoria cone below the skyline near the center of this photo. South Belknap scoria cone lies below Belknap Crater, a cone on the Belknap shield volcano. The lower peak on the right skyline is Little Belknap, a shield volcano constructed on the E flank of Belknap. Largely unvegetated lava flows cover nearly 100 km2 in the McKenzie Pass area.
