These adnate cones are of peculiar significance when we come to consider the volcanic rocks of which the region is composed. The rim is ribbed by ridges and spurs radiating from the lake, and the head of each spur is marked...

At Crater Lake, neither in the walls themselves, nor in the immediate neighborhood back of the crest line, have any traces of sinkage been observed as yet. Nothing can at present be pointed out which suggests the Hawaiian mode of origin, beyond the fact...
