Of the four major Guatemalan volcanoes in this photo, only conical Agua volcano (right-center horizon) has not erupted during historical time.  Lava flows from MacKenney cone (forming the slope in the left foreground) have filled in the moat of the caldera of Pacaya volcano almost to the level of the lower crater rim of Cerro Chino (right-center foreground), whose summit bristles with communication antennas.  The twin volcanoes on the left horizon are Fuego (left), one of the most active in Guatemala, and Acatenango (right). Photo by Lee Siebert, 1999 (Smithsonian Institution).
