The summit of San Miguel volcano provides a vista down an E-W-trending volcanic chain between it and San Vicente volcano, the sharp-topped peak on the right horizon.  The broad El Tigre volcano appears in the center of the photo beyond the slopes of Chinameca volcano in the right foreground.  At the extreme left is Usulután, and to its left the summit of Taburete volcano is hidden behind a small cloud.  Behind El Tigre are the peaks of the Tecapa volcanic complex.
