An aerial view from the north looks down on the acidic lake of the Active Crater.  Layered pyroclastic deposits are exposed in its SW crater wall.  The crater rim of forested Rincón de la Vieja cone is at the upper left, with the non-volcanic Jilgueros lake (also known as Laguna Fria) at the top center. Photo by Eliecer Duarte (OVSICORI-UNA).
