Firepit Knoll (left) is the largest and most well-preserved of a cluster of late-Pleistocene cinder cones on the upper Kolob Plateau in SW Zion National Park. These cones were erupted through sedimentary rocks of the Navajo Sandstone, which forms the light-colored peak of Red Butte at the right. The cinder cones erupted basaltic lava flows that traveled down valleys as far as 10-15 km to the south. The flat-topped summits of the Pine Valley Mountains form the skyline.
