Two dramatically different volcano morphologies are visible in this photo of Las Pilas volcanic complex.  Conical 818-m-high Asososca stratovolcano (left foreground) has a pronounced erosional valley on its southern flank.  Broad Las Pilas volcano (right background) rises to 1088 m and has a more complex volcanic history.  These are the two most prominent of a roughly 30-km-long chain of N-S-trending vents.
