Very interesting! I must go there, inside, next (hopefully) time! Best wishes, André.
Looks like stream sediment, but why the edge you are strolling by? Have you been back to this place since the photo?
Obrigado André! This is in the restricted area, but there is a trail planned to be built and opened by 2013 to the Sugar Bowl which overlooks this area.
Hi Chris. I have not been back here since then as it is in a restricted area. I was with two geologist when I took the photo. The material is composed mostly of pumice and was from an explosive event in the volcano. You can see a steaming lava dome in the background and a deep gully crossing the photo.
Best regards, Larry
Ok, so there is a new, deep channel that has cut (eroded)the edge of the pumice flow?
That is correct. It has grown quite a bit since 1987 and the new glacier that now wraps the lava dome is nearing this location.
