Snow-covered Knutson Lake (lower left) lies within a 1.5 x 2 km wide crater of Mount Dana. Dana is a small volcano consisting of a central dome complex surrounded by a fan of volcaniclastic debris. Lava domes are along the western crater rim and inside the crater east of Knutson Lake. A major eruption about 3,840 radiocarbon years ago produced a block-and-ash flow that filled valleys south and west of the crater.
