Groundhog cinder cone is the youngest of the Golden Trout volcanic field. It is seen here from the west with South Fork cone behind it at the upper left and Olancha Peak on the crest of the Sierra Nevada on the right horizon. Groundhog cone is breached to the NE and was the source of large lava flows (visible in the foreground) that traveled 6 km to the west. The flows filled the valley of Golden Trout Creek and displaced it to the north side, separating Golden Trout Creek from Volcano Creek at the southern margin of the flow.
