This view from the summit of Mount Pelée shows the eastern rim of l'Etang Sec, the current summit crater of Mount Pelée.  The 1902 and 1920 lava domes fill much of this crater.  The town with reddish roofs at the far right is Morne Rouge, affected by pyroclastic flows from the 1902 eruption. Photo by Paul Kimberly, 2002 (Smithsonian Institution).
