North Potato Butte, seen here from South Potato Butte, is a 65,000-75,000-year-old cinder cone located in the Hat Creek valley north of Lassen Peak.  The Potato Butte cinder cones are among a series of small Quaternary basaltic volcanic vents located between Lassen and Medicine Lake volcanoes. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1998 (Smithsonian Institution).
