Image Caption:
North-central Mindanao

This is a spectacular color photograph which displays the geolo-
gic diversity east and south of Cagayan de Oro (1), Mindanao. A
large fault (2) is well delineated with older uplifted sedimenta-
ry rocks to the east. To the south, two large mountains, Mt.
Kaatoan (3) and Mt. Catatungan (4) have elevations close to 3000
m, but their flanks have been completely deforested. The tightly
meandering but incised river which flows between them (5) indi-
cates that the region is still being uplifted. Volcanic plugs
and flows can be seen at (6). (61A-40-72, 73)
