The summit of Santa María provides this vantage point for viewing eruptions of the Santiaguito lava dome. This February 1988 ash plume rose from the vent to a height slightly above the summit. The brief 1-2 minute explosions produced light ashfall to within about 6 km of the vent. Photo by Jon Fink, Arizona State University, 1988 (courtesy of Bill Rose, Michigan Technological University).
