El Valle de Anton

EL VALLE DE ANTON: Down, way down, in a valley surrounded by mist-wreathed mountaintops near this comfortable community, are the red tile roofs of miniature homes. But they are not in a valley and they are not so small, they are inside the 20 square kilometer crater of a volcano atop a mountain, the second-largest inhabited extinct volcano in the world. Surrounding them are sheer-sided, jungle-covered peaks that rise a further 600 feet. They are actually the rim walls left in place when the caldera collapsed and became the flat valley floor.
