Image Caption: Lava flows appear as dark stringy patches leading down the flanks of volcanoes
which comprise the large, seahorse-shaped island of Isabela. Other flows
appear on the flanks of Fernandina Island, the smaller round island to the left,
which is made up of a single large volcanic cone. The Galapagos Islands lie
above a hot spot underneath the oceanic plate that has been active at least for
tens of millions of years.
