A tumulus on the surface of a pahoehoe lava flow in the foreground is exposed on the western flank of Masaya volcano, with Nindirí cone rising in the background.  Nindirí is the westernmost cone of Masaya's summit complex and is cut by a large summit crater not apparent from this vantage point.   Photo by Jaime Incer.
