Details for: Nazko
Nazko cone is the easternmost and youngest volcano of the Anahim volcanic belt in the Chilcotin-Nechako Plateau in central British Columbia. The cone rises about 120 m above the surface of the plateau, as seen here across a valley from the SW. The central subglacial mound is partly enveloped by younger, coalescing pyroclastic cones that form the summit ridge. The steep front of a young lava flow erupted about 7200 years ago forms the forested margin of the swamp in the middle foreground. Photo by Geological Survey of Canada (courtesy of Cathie Hickson).
