Cerro Verde, a 2030-m-high satellitic cone of Santa Ana volcano, is seen here from the NW above Hacienda San Blas.  Cerro Verde is near the SE end of a 20-km-long eruptive fissure that cuts across Santa Ana from its lower NNE flank.  Three N-S-trending craters are located at the summit of Cerro Verde, and a fourth is located on the SE flank of the cone.     Photo by Kristal Dorion, 1994 (U.S. Geological Survey).
