The powerful 1913 explosive eruption at Colima removed about 100 m of the summit and created a large 450-m-wide crater. The jagged 1913 crater rim is seen here in 1936 from Nevado de Colima. Lava had partially filled the 350-m-deep crater, but did not overflow the rim until 1961. El Volcancito, the lava dome created in 1869, is the feature on the left side of the cone.
