"El Nevado del Ruiz" (El Ruiz snow peak). Part of the Los Nevados National Park. I took this picture on December 27, 2006 at around 6:30 pm local time. 20 years ago the snow covered the peak and the volcano. To the left of the mountain you can still see some smoke coming out of the Arenas crater, which points to the other side of the Los Andes mountain range. It exploded in 1985 burying the 25.000-people city of Armero in the middle of the night. It remains as one of the most beautiful natural attractions not only of Manizales, but Colombia.
