Cerro Negro volcano provides a vantage point for a NW-looking view down the Marrabios Range volcanic chain.  The forested slopes in the foreground are part of Rota volcano.  The light-colored conical peak in the center is Volcán Santa Clara, part of the Telica volcanic complex, whose principal peak, Telica itself, just pokes its head above the horizon behind and to the right of Santa Clara.  The large conical peak on the center horizon is San Cristóbal, the highest peak of the Marrabios Range.  The satellitic peak of El Chonco is on the left horizon.
