S-P Crater, Arizona (Infrared).  Framed here by a gaunt-but-graceful juniper tree, this well-formed cinder cone north of Flagstaff is estimated to be around 60,000 years old (i.e., very young by geologic standards).  It is part of northern Arizona’s San Francisco Volcanic Field, a hotspot that contains over 600 volcanic peaks and vents.<br />
