The small island volcano of Farallón de Pájaros contains a series of lava flows erupted during historical time. This 1980 photo from the SE shows unvegetated lava flows that diverted around the vegetated peak to the lower right, which is a remant of a caldera that formed prior to the formation of the present cone.
