Mt Thielsen is 290,000 years old and all that's left is the central plug sitting atop the remains of earlier lava flows. The smooth sides of the mountain, so evident in this photograph, are composed of ash, deposited when Mt Mazama, the mountain that now holds Crater Lake, erupted 7,600 years ago.

Some of the most spectacular views of Mt Thielsen are available from the hiking trail.
