Aurora-Bodie volcanic field in west-central Nevada near the California border NNE of Mono Lake contains well-preserved cinder cones and lava flows of late Pleistocene age. The most prominent feature, Aurora Crater, is a 25,000 years before present cinder cone surrounded by lava flows. Mud Spring volcano is another late Pleistocene vent with a well-preserved lava flow. Older volcanics of the field include Pliocene andesitic lava domes and Pliocene cones such as Beauty Peak and Mount Hicks.
