Panum Crater Sunset

Panum Crater at sunset

Panum Crater, on the south side of Mono Lake, at the north end of Mono Craters, is one of the newest additions to the volcanic landscape of the American west (under 700 years old). The smooth rim of the crater and the jagged plug in the middle offer great views in all directions. Sunset is a nice time to be there.
