Obsidian is a volcanic glass produced when felsic lava cools rapidly with minimal crystal growth. Now imagine an entire mile long hill 300 feet high made of that. As far as geological features go, this one is practically an infant, formed only 600 years ago. You can climb up the dome from the parking lot(2.7 miles of a dirt road from Highway 395), but remember, like glass, this rock is sharp. Wear good shoes and don’t fall. The views from the top are obviously grand, and also some what other worldly. It’s like you’re standing on a patch of land from a different planet that was dropped onto the green Earth.
