Photo Gallery

A group of cinder cones at Tosa Sucha lies near the northern shore of Lake Chamo, the greenish lake at the bottom-center portion of this NASA Landsat image (with north to the top). The cones occupy a faulted area between Lake Chamo and the southern end of yellowish Lake Abaya. Some cones form islands in Lake Chamo. The unvegetated olivine basaltic lava flows have been estimated to perhaps have been active as recently as historical time.
