Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Mono-Inyo Craters are a north-south-trending volcanic chain in Eastern California that stretches 25 miles from the northwest shore of Mono Lake to south of Mammoth Mountain. The chain is located in Mono County in the U.S. state of California. Mono Lake Volcanic Field forms the northernmost part of the chain and consists of two volcanic islands in the lake and one cinder cone volcano on its northwest shore. Most of the Mono Craters, which make up the bulk of the northern part of the Mono-Inyo chain, are phreatic volcanoes that have since been either plugged or over-topped by rhyolite domes and lava flows. The Inyo Craters form much of the southern part of the chain and consist of phreatic explosion pits, and rhyolitic lava flows and domes. The southernmost part of the chain consists of fumaroles and explosion pits on Mammoth Mountain and a set of cinder cones south of the mountain; the latter are called the Red Conesshow more
