The summit of Fuego volcano is seen here from the ESE, looking along the chain of large stratovolcanoes stretching across Guatemala. The shoulder to the right of Fuego is a remnant of Meseta volcano, whose growth and collapse preceded formation of the modern cone of Fuego. Behind its summit are the paired volcanoes of conical Atitlán (left) and Tolimán, with a lower double summit. Above the saddle between them are Pleistocene Santo Tomás (left) and the frequently active Santa María (right). Tajumulco is on the skyline just right of center.
