Meszah Peak of the Level Mountain volcanic complex is viewed from the east. The dark unit in the center foreground is alkali basalt. Trachytic lava flows and agglomerates form a series of benches at the base of Meszah Peak. The cliffs are composed of welded tuffs capped by thin basaltic lava flows. Level Mountain volcano is the most voluminous and most persistent eruptive center of the Stikine volcanic belt in NW British Columbia, covering an area of 1,800 km2 north of Telegraph Creek.
