Santa Maria Volcano, Guatemala

A small blocky lava dome fills the crater of Caliente vent on the Santiaguito lava dome of Guatemala's Santa Maria volcano on July 18, 1969.

This was near the beginning of a period of renewed activity at the Caliente vent, on the eastern side of Santiaguito.

Growth of the composite Santiaguito lava dome has been occurring since 1922.
