The Long Valley Caldera was formed about 760 Ka over a period of a few days as ~600 cubic kilometers of magma erupted during one of the Quaternary's largest eruptions. This image was taken from near the southern rim of the volcano on outcrops of Bishop Tuff, the main product of the eruption. The edge of the caldera runs along the base of the Sierra Nevada on the left of the image and the base of Glass Mountain, visible across Crowley Lake on the rigth of the image. The Hilton Creek Fault, site of earthquakes in the early 1980s, trends across the McGee Creek morains on the left.
