Eiler Butte, the small flat-topped cinder cone at left-center just below the low point on the horizon, is the northermost of a chain of cinder cones forming the Tumble Buttes volcanic field. Eiler Butte, located within the Thousand Lake Wilderness Area, is seen here from Burney Mountain, with snow-capped Lassen Peak in the background to the south. The Tumble Buttes are a N-S-trending chain of cinder cones and lava flows that form some of the youngest volcanic features north of Mount Lassen.
