The Lava Cast Forest flow was one of several lava flows erupted from the upper NW rift zone of Newberry volcano about 6200 years ago.  The flow is named for its abundant casts of trees formed when the flow chilled and cooled around standing or fallen tree trunks. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1997 (Smithsonian Institution).
