Rolling in a RV: Newberry National Volcanic Monument — Newberry Caldera

From the bloggers at Rolling in a RV.

Newberry Volcano is the largest volcano is the Cascades. It has erupted numerous times over the last 400,000 years and created a unique landscape of cinder cones, obsidian flows, chunky pumice flows, a mile long lava tube and two caldera lakes.

The lava flows extend for 75 miles. The monument contains just a small portion of the flows but includes the most interesting features like the caldera lakes and a large cinder cone.

The monument has two major sections that are miles apart from each other so I’m making two separate posts.
