These volcanoes are old and tired and content to be enjoyed by tourists these days. Though a dubious eruption occurred here in 1609, the only thing coming out of this volcanic field right now is steam from hydrothermal features.  In the picture above is an area where one might see some excellent examples of jointed basalt exposed by erosion.
