An aerial view to the NW looks down the spine of the Marrabios Range, which rises above the floor of the Nicaraguan depression.  In the foreground is Momotombo volcano, which rises to 1297 m above the shores of Lake Managua (left).  Monte Galán caldera lies beyond the right-hand flanks of Momotombo.  Stretching across much of the photo beyond Momotombo is the N-S-trending Las Pilas complex, and the conical peak in the far distance is San Cristóbal volcano. Photo by Jaime Incer, 1997.
