Siete Orejas volcano provides a spectacular perspective of Santa María volcano. The SW (right-hand) slope of Santa María is slightly scalloped by the profile of the massive crater produced by the 1902 eruption. The forested peak on the lower NE flank of Santa María is Volcán del Valle, an eroded basaltic cinder cone. Behind it is Santo Tomás (Pecul) volcano. Light-colored pumice deposits from the 1902 eruption of Santa María and a Pleistocene eruption of Siete Orejas volcano mantle the foreground.
