The thick, blocky unvegetated lava flow descending diagonally across the photo originated from El Brujo vent (upper right) at the western end of the compound Santiaguito dacitic lava dome. This north-looking 1970 view from the Mirador at Finca La Florida shows Santiaguito's SW-flank topography prior to a period of rapid lava extrusion from El Brujo during 1972-75. The slopes of Siete Orejas volcano form the horizon.
