This aerial view looks from the east across the inner summit caldera of Ceboruco. The unvegetated lava flow in the center was emplaced either in 1870-75, or during earlier eruptions in 1542 or 1567. The flow covering the caldera floor to the lower right is the near-vent portion of the voluminous El Norte lava flows. The ridge in the foreground is the eastern rim of the inner caldera.
