This dramatic near-vertical aerial photo looks down on El Hoyo, a spectacular pit crater near the summit of Las Pilas volcano.  The pit crater, approximately 100 m in diameter, was formed by collapse.  El Hoyo is located immediately south of the rim of the 700-m-wide summit crater of Las Pilas (upper right).
