Cerro Bravo volcano, Colombia, is seen to the north from the northern flank of Nevado del Ruiz.  The CB1 summit dome rises above an older dome and cone complex, probably produced during the CB7-CB5 phase of activity.  Below this, the remains of the pre-Cerro Bravo volcano are truncated by the Pleistocene Quebrada Seca Caldera.  Most of the Pleistocene lava flows in the foreground are associated with Nevado del Ruiz. Photo by David Lescinsky, 1988 (University of Western Ontario).
