Northern Arizona Volcanoes

 (JPG) Northern Arizona Volcanoes (165,266 bytes) ( 1,073 x 800 )
Northern Arizona is best known for the Grand Canyon. Less widely known are the hundreds of geologically young volcanoes, at least one of which buried the homes of local residents. San Francisco Mtn., a truncated stratovolcano at 3887 meters, was once a much taller structure (about 4900 meters) before it exploded some 400,000 years ago a la Mt. St. Helens. The young cinder cone field to its east includes Sunset Crater, that erupted in 1064 and buried Native American homes. This ASTER perspective was created by draping ASTER image data over topographic data from the U.S. Geological Survey National Elevation Data. The image was acquired on October 21, 2003, and is centered near 35.3 degrees north latitude and 111.5 degrees west longitude.
