The Sunset Crater in Arizona......It first erupted in 1064 , and the last major eruption occurred in 1100 , raising the volcano's height to about 300 meters. A final burst of activity in the 13th century painted the upper portion of the otherwise black cone with bright red and orange rocks, giving the volcano its name. The volcano has partially revegetated, with pines and wildflowers. (from Wikipedia)
