Full Size Image

Red Cones are a pair of basaltic cinder cones located 5 km SSW of Mammoth Mountain at the southern end of the Mono- Inyo volcanic chain, in eastern California. Charcoal recovered at two separate locations beneath the Red Cones scoria-fall deposits indicates that the eruption most likely occurred shortly after 8490 90 14C yr B.P. and no later than 9325 83 14C yr B.P., which implicates Red Cones as the most recent eruption of basalt in the Mono-Inyo volcanic chain (Browne, et al., 2010)

Elevation: 2831m.
