The green Manzanita-covered slope in the foreground is part of the circular rim of South Potato Butte, one of two cinder cones forming Potato Butte.  The two cinder cones fed youthful-looking lava flows down the Hat Creek graben.  Snow-covered Lassen Peak rises in the distance, with the Chaos Crags lava dome complex to its right.
