IMAGE 24623
AVO Image

Looking north along the eastern caldera rim on top of the caldera wall. Horizontal deposits exposed in the cliff wall are remnants of a pre-caldera stratocone. The undulating unit capping the wall is the welded pyroclastic flow deposit from the caldera-forming eruption, locally as thick as 5 meters, with pumice fall deposits from the same eruption directly beneath the welded unit. Highly tilted rocks in the left foreground are phreatomagmatic surge deposits from post-caldera eruptions beneath the eastern caldera lake.
