The unvegetated summit of Atitlán volcano is cut by two shallow craters, the largest of which is breached to the south.  San Pedro volcano rises across Santiago bay to the right, and in the distance (left-to-right) are the peaks of Santo Tomás, Santa María, and Tajumulco.  Atitlán is the highest and the only one of the three post-caldera cones of Atitlán caldera to have had eruptions during historical time. Photo by Bill Rose, 1980 (Michigan Technological University).
