Schonchin Butte, a late-Pleistocene cinder cone on the north flank of Medicine Lake volcano, is one of the most prominent landmarks of Lava Beds National Monument.  A large number of lava tubes in the area fed late-Pleistocene and Holocene lava flows and are accessible to monument visitors. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1981 (Smithsonian Institution).
