Photo Gallery

Ile de l'Est, the easternmost island in the Crozet archipelago, is seen in this NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the top). The glacially eroded basaltic stratovolcano contains about a half dozen young scoria cones of possible Holocene age concentrated on its eastern flank. Cape Itaine forms the small peninsula on the SW side of the island (lower left), and Abondance Bay is at the bottom center.
