Imbabura volcano rises above the town of San Pablo del Lago in this aerial view from the south.  The tip of Laguna de San Pablo is visible at the left.  The main edifice, Taita Imbabura ("Father Imbabura"), forms the summit.  Huarmi Imbabura ("Imbabura's Son") is a lateral lava-dome complex forming the grassy shoulder on the SW flank directly above the town of San Pablo del Lago in this view.   Activity at the dominantly Pleistocene Imbabura volcano continued into at least the early Holocene. Photo by Patricio Ramon (Instituto Geofisca, Escuela Politecnica Nacional).
