Mount Iriga has a prominent horseshoe-shaped crater opening to the SE that was formed by a large flank collapse during an eruption during the Holocene. The hilly terrain in the foreground encloses small ponds on the surface of the debris avalanche deposit. Photo by Chris Newhall (U.S. Geological Survey).
