Photo Gallery

A cluster of cinder cones and low shield volcanoes surrounds the city of Jutiapa in SE Guatemala. This photo shows Volcán Culma, a lava cone composed of coarsely porphyritic basaltic lavas on the eastern side of the city. The most prominent feature of the volcanic field is Cerro Santiago, one of two coalescing cinder cones capping a low shield volcano SE of Jutiapa. This photo was taken from the Pan-American highway, which here is underlain by youthful flows from the twin Los Cerritos cones NE of Jutiapa.
