This aerial photo from the east overlooks the summit cone complex of the Rincón de la Vieja volcanic massif, the centerpiece of the 14,083-hectare Rincón de la Vieja National Park.  The turquoise-colored lake of the Active Crater lies at the right center, with the dark-colored Laguna Fria at the lower left.  The arcuate, forested ridge at the lower left is the rim of Rincón de la Vieja cone itself.  Erosional gullies cut the tephra-mantled slopes of the Active Crater and Von Seebach cone at the upper left.   Photo by Federico Chavarria Kopper, 1995 (courtesy of Eduardo Malavassi, OVSICORI-UNA).
