E. Points of Geological Interest in Crater Lake National Park

   14. Mount Scott

This is what remains of a parasitic satellite cone of Mount Mazama that grew near its eastern base, presenting on the east a classic symmetrical volcanic silhouette. The western slope has been eroded by glaciation. It was built up before Mazama’s collapse and was probably a secondary vent during Mazama’s activity. Mount Scott is the park’s highest peak, at 8,926 feet.
