The twin peaks of Volcán Conchagua appear in the distance on the left horizon in this view to the east from the summit of San Miguel volcano.  Conchagua lies on the shore of the Gulf of Fonseca at the SE tip of El Salvador.  The large lake in the center of the photo is Laguna de Olomega.  Flat-topped Cosiqüina volcano in Nicaragua is visible in the far distance at the upper right across the Gulf of Fonseca. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1999 (Smithsonian Institution).
