The unvegetated cone of Cerro Negro, the youngest volcano in Nicaragua, is seen here from the slopes of Las Pilas volcano at the end of its 1995 eruption.   Lava flows in 1995 traveled to the NNE (right).  Beyond Cerro Negro to the NW is the broad massif of Rota volcano.  Unlike Telica and San Cristóbal volcanoes in the distance at the far upper left, Rota has had no historical eruptions.   Photo by Britt Hill, 1995 (Southwest Research Institute).
