Virtual Volcano Vacation challenge #15 – Postcard #5

VVVc15e

Here is a view of the whole neighborhood. You have already seen the one with the small crater lake (upper left in the distance) as well as the tall one (upper right in the background) . In the center are the collapsed volcanic peak (center-left) and my cold and jagged and right uncomfortable lava dome (center-right)

The huge crater lake in the lower-right belongs to the neighbor to the east. That lake is far larger than the one belonging to the southwest neighbor and the mountain used to be as tall as the north-northeast neighbor. An eruption reduced the mountain’s summit elevation by around 250 meters and formed the caldera and lake.
