A vigorous steam plume pours from the summit crater of San Cristóbal volcano in December 1971, following an eruption that began on May 3.  This mild explosive eruption lasted until early July.  The 1971 activity marked the first documented eruptive activity at San Cristóbal since the 17th century.  The volcano is seen here from the El Limón gold mine east of the volcano.
