Long Description:
"Anchored in Time. Phantom ship is a remnant of one of the mountain's original cones (Phantom Cone) that dates to about 400000 years ago. It is now exposed evidence of a volcano that existed at this spot and formed part of Mount Mazama complex. Although it is as high as a 14 story building (more than 160 feet high) for this location it appears to be the size of a toy sailboat."
