Nice pyro flows.

Appears that Fuego is evolving into a situation very similar to Mayon, with a small summit crater, round conical upper slopes & occasional large fire fountains, clastogenic lava flows and pyro flows.

Current Mayonnaise is interesting, appears to be basaltic andesite, but may be basalt by now.

Have a nice day: Ag
