The Caribou volcanic field east of Lassen National Park contains about 140 mid-Pleistocene to late-Pleistocene cones and shields that are controlled by Basin and Range extensional faulting. The Caribou volcanic field was active from about 450,000 to 20,000 years ago (Hildreth, 2007). The field includes a long, NW-SE-trending chain of Pleistocene cinder cones immediately west of Bogard Buttes.
