Bald Knoll is the youngest of a group of cinder cones on the SW part of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in southern Utah. It is seen here from the SW with the escarpment forming the Pink Cliffs of the renowned Grand Staircase of Paleozoic sedimentary rocks in the background. The proximal part of a voluminous blocky lava flow that traveled to the south from a vent at the base of the youthful-looking cinder cone forms the shaded area in the foreground.
