Craters of the aptly named Four Craters Lava Field are seen here from the NW on Green Mountain.  The Four Craters field is the SE-most of a group of three lava fields SE of Newberry volcano in the High Lava Plains of central Oregon.  Four pyroclastic cones were constructed along a roughly 4-km-long NW-SE-trending line.  The age of the Four Craters lava field is not known precisely but could be latest Pleistocene or early Holocene.      Photo by Lee Siebert, 2000 (Smithsonian Institution).
