Yesterday I mis-stated that this volcano is erupting (as one of my ordinarily reliable sources had me believe). It has erupted very recently, but being off the beaten path means it is not monitored as closely as other mountains and the end-date of the eruption is somewhat ambiguous…but there is still a lot of lava in there..rather soupy mafic stuff.  Suffice to say I had to get out of there and find a better view.

This active volcano has two much older hangers-on attached to its sides, as seen in this 3D-rendered view from Google-Earth.
