Cerro-Negro Volcano, Nicaragua

Cerro Negro cinder cone in Nicaragua, Central America's youngest volcano, was born in April 1850.

It has been one of Nicaragua's most active volcanoes, building up a roughly 250-m-high cinder cone surrounded by a field of fresh lava flows.

Cerro Negro is seen here in 1981 from Cerro la Mula on the north, the next in a chain of four cinder cones erupted along a N-S line.
