This vegetated slope is the margin of a lava flow erupted from the Media Luna scoria cone that traveled about 3 km down the Quebrada Media Luna and diverted the stream to the northern side of the valley. Near the distal end of the flow it fills a broad valley, diverting the Río Chitra to the far western side of the valley.
