Second, lower ignimbrite seen. Several surge layers, interbedded by welded flow layers. These may also be water-laid lava, as lava seems pillow-like. Angular pumice clasts in stratified (phreatomagmatic surge?) beds suggest minimal transport. Welded flow / lava beds are ~15-20 m thick, then alluvial bed containing reworked glass bits ~ 1m thick (suggesting large time gap between low flow and overlying cinders. 10 m of red agglomerate cinders overly that. There may be a cap rock (Fisher Tuff?) above the cinders in a distant outcrop Cinders above lower PF / lava. Red, aphyric
