|Red Cones, Madera County, California.
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)
