Evening sun gilds the western flank of Santa María volcano.  The light-colored area at the upper right is the upper headwall of the 1902 explosion crater that cuts the volcano's SW flank.  Light-colored pumice deposits from the 1902 eruption are prominent on the flanks of the volcano, where they exceed 15 m in thickness. Photo by Bill Rose, 1970 (Michigan Technological University).
