Nevado del Ruiz (also known as La Mesa de Herveo or Volcan Ruiz) is a massive active stratovolcano located some 129 km west of Bogota, Columbia. Its summit is covered with large glaciers. It is locally known as the ‘sleeping lion’, meaning that the locals remember and respect its danger.
The Toya – Usu post led me to the interesting volcanic history of Hokkaido, Japan. Found a multiple caldera complex in eastern Hokkaido with three calderas in close proximity to one another. Will write about these for the next few posts.
