    That large mountain on your left is called Prisoner's Rock, possibly in reference to some of the Modocs eventually taken prisoner. It was formed by volcanic eruptions approximately 270 thousand years ago when hot magma came in contact with Tule Lake, and was of major religious significance to the Modocs.
