Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-07819
The thick unvegetated lava flow descending diagonally across the photo originated from El Brujo (upper right) at the western end of the Santiaguito lava dome complex. This north-looking 1970 view shows Santiaguito's SW-flank topography prior to a period of rapid lava extrusion from El Brujo during 1972-75. The flanks of Siete Orejas volcano form the horizon.
