Tajumulco, the highest volcano in Central America, is seen here from the NW from the slopes of Tacaná volcano, which lies along the México/Guatemala border.  Conical Tajumulco volcano has twin summits, which are not distinguishable in this view.  A lava flow from Tajumulco's NW summit traveled NW down a deep valley on the flank.  Tajumulco has had several unconfirmed reports of historical eruptions.      Photo by Norm Banks, 1987 (U.S. Geological Survey).
