A road in the relatively sparsely populated far western part of Guatemala approaches the NE side of the summit massif of Tajumulco volcano; this side has gentler slopes and higher agricultural use than the NW side.  Tajumulco lies NW of the main tourist areas in the Central Highlands and is infrequently visited.  The volcano is located closer to Tacaná volcano on the México/Guatemala border than it is to other Guatemalan volcanoes. Photo by Bill Rose, 1986 (Michigan Technological University).
