Newberry shield volcano covers an area of about 1,600 km2 about 60 km E of the crest of the Cascade Range in central Oregon. The low-angle shield volcano covers an area of 60 km in a N-S direction and 30 km E-W. More than 400 scoria cones dot the flanks of the volcano, including Lava Butte at the left center of this photo, one of many cones formed around 6,100 years ago along the NW rift zone.
