Online geology field trip: the Deadhorse Volcano, Skyline Divide, Mount Baker volcanic field

The last couple of miles of Skyline Divide. The Deadhorse Volcano is marked by the red pin and Hildreth’s unit designation ‘acr’. Click to enlarge.

A nearly unknown volcanic vent is exposed in cross section on a rock wall at the south end of Skyline Divide north of Mount Baker. Click here to read my on-line field guide to the informally named  “Deadhorse Volcano“. Yes, I know, winter approacheth, so chances to visit this eroded volcano are fast-slipping away. Hope for a weather break, or save this little gem until after the snow is gone next year. The snow that hasn’t fallen- yet.
