Guadeloupe and Martinique

Morne Lacroix (1247m.a.s.l.) offers the best view of the Caldera de l'Etang Sec with its spectacular andesitic domes. The 1929 dome is partly hidden by summit clouds (left, 1397m.a.s.l.) and is the highest, although the 1902 dome (right, 1362m.a.s.l.) appears higher since it is closer. On the left of the Caldera, Abri Mouttet (hut with seismometers), on the right the prehistoric caldera rim Morne Macouba (1292m.a.s.l.) and the small tourist hut.
