A group of scoria cones and low-elevation edifices surrounds the city of Jutiapa in SE Guatemala. This photo shows Volcán Culma, a cone largely composed of basaltic lavas on the eastern side of the city. The most prominent feature of the volcanic field is Cerro Santiago, one of two coalescing scoria cones SE of Jutiapa.  Photo by Giuseppina Kysar, 1999 (Smithsonian Institution).
