San Vicente is one of El Salvador's largest volcanoes. The hill in the foreground is a hummock of the Tecoluca debris avalanche deposit on the SE flank, with the main edifice in the background. The avalanche and associated lahars traveled about 25 km to the Río Lempa. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1999 (Smithsonian Institution).
