Details for: Meager
The Mount Meager volcanic complex is the northernmost major volcanic center in the Canadian extension of the Cascade Range. This Tertiary to Holocene complex has erupted rocks of mafic to felsic composition from at least 8 vents. The most recent eruption produced a pyroclastic flow and lava flow from a NE flank vent about 2350 years ago. This view from the Lillooet River valley to the west shows, from left to right, the glacially dissected volcanic necks of Mount Capricorn, Meager Mountain, and Plinth Mountain.
