Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Indian Heaven
The youngest eruption of the Indian Heaven volcanic field, midway between Mount St. Helens and Mount Adams, produced a large cinder cone and a voluminous lava flow about 8200 years ago. The source of the flow is the cinder cone at the right, with Mt. Hood visible in the background. The Big Lava Bed flow, which forms the smooth slope in the foreground, banked against higher slopes to the north and traveled 13 km south to within 8 km of the Columbia River.
