An eastward-looking aerial view down the main Salvadoran volcanic front shows San Vicente volcano below the cloud in the foreground and Tecapa, El Tigre, and Usulután volcanoes below the horizon at the upper right.  The small cone in the saddle between Usulután and El Tigre is Cerro Oromontique.  Behind Tecapa and El Tigre is conical San Miguel volcano, and to its right in the far distance is Conchagua volcano, the easternmost on the Salvadoran mainland.
