Photo Gallery

The small forested volcano left of the center of this NASA Landsat image, its eastern (right) flank traversed by a winding road, is Volcán el Soche. This small stratovolcano near the Colombia border lies just west of the Río Chingual, which vertically bisects this image. Soche is the northernmost of a chain of Ecuadorian volcanoes east of the principal volcanic axis and was the source of a major explosive eruption during the early Holocene. The village of La Bonita (lower left-center) lies at the southern end of the volcano.
