Two conical peaks of differing age rise to the east above the floor of the Nicaraguan depression.  Cerro Asososca (left), part of Las Pilas volcanic complex, was constructed along a fissure extending south from Las Pilas.  Erosional gullies cut the flanks of the 818-m-high cone.  In the distance to the right is the younger Momotombo volcano, frequently active during historical time. Photo by Jaime Incer, 1996.
