The elongated summit ridge of Láscar volcano (right) rises above a flock of flamingos in Laguna Lejía. Láscar is at the western end of an E-W-oriented volcanic complex that includes Volcán Aguas Calientes, out of view to the right. Six overlapping craters occupy the summit ridge of Láscar. The presently active crater, near the center horizon of this photo from the SE, has recently produced explosive eruptions accompanied by growth of a lava dome.
