Cinder cones are the smallest and simplest type of volcano. But that doesn't mean they can't pack a punch. Best described as steep, conical hills, cinder cones are formed by pyroclastic rock fragments, or cinders, which accumulate and gradually build a tapered mound or knoll with a bowl-shaped crater at the top. While most are modest in size, some appear as large as mountains, spectacular in their scale and beauty. Cinder cones are found scattered around the world, but where can you admire the most dramatic and compelling examples?
