Another panoramic view. Because I didn't have a conventional tripod, my panoramas usually came out skewed.

All my crater panoramas are stitched together by hand because the automatic software was completely befuddled by such big and detailed panoramas.

Looking down the very steep inside slope of the crater.   In this part of the crater, there was small forest where the floor (upper left) intersected the sloping side (lower right).
