The Chinameca volcanic complex on the center horizon is seen here from the west beyond the low-angle slopes of the Pleistocene El Tigre volcano in the foreground.  The low, flat-topped peak at the right side of the Chinameca complex is Cerro el Limbo, a cone on the western flank of Chinameca caldera.  The high conical peak at the upper right is San Miguel volcano, which is separated by a low saddle from Chinameca.
