Photo Gallery

The small snow-covered volcano at the center of this NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the top) is Golaya. This small-volume basaltic stratovolcano of Pleistocene-to-Holocene age lies south of Asacha volcano (top-center). The 858-m-high Golaya volcano is elongated in a N-S direction and overlooks small shield volcanoes and cinder cones to the west related to regional basaltic volcanism near the headwaters of the Asacha River.
