A vertical aerial photo shows the nested craters of Volcán Riveroll (right-center) and the intersecting craters of Volcán Basu (below and to the left).  The Riveroll craters are breached to the NW (upper left).  Dark-colored basaltic lava flows extend to the SE from both cinder cone complexes.  The flow from Riveroll diverts around the Kenton cinder cone at the lower right.  The light-colored areas are windblown sand.  The Pacific coast shoreline is at the left, and the body of water at the upper right is part of San Quintín  Bay.
