Stage 1 - Caldera
The best obsidian for tool production is found in a oval volcanic depression 2 km across that is known locally as "Maymeja". The eastern rim of Maymeja is visible in the background of this photo. Cheyla Samuelson, Willy Yepez, Saul Morales and I are surveying areas not covered by snow during this first week.
