An aerial view shows the terminous of the Lava Park lava flow, erupted from a vent on the flank of Shastina lava dome on the NW flank of Mount Shasta about 9300 years ago.  The blocky basaltic-andesite flow is about 6 km long and 110 m thick at its snout.  The lava flow overlies a wide apron of pyroclastic-flow deposits erupted from Mount Shasta about 9700 years ago.  The area shown is about 2000 m wide.  The broad line crossing the photo near the bottom is Highway 97. Photo by Dan Miller, 1980 (U.S. Geological Survey).
