Three lava domes formed along the northern margin of the youngest of El Valle caldera, 80 km SW of Panama City. Cerro Pajita (left), Cerro Gaital (center), and Cerro Caracoral (right) rise above the caldera floor in this view from the SW caldera rim. The 6-km-wide El Valle de Antón caldera formed about 1 million years ago. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1998 (Smithsonian Institution).
