The deeply dissected volcanic massif at the upper right is Pueblo Nuevo Viñas stratovolcano (also known as Cerro la Gabia).  It is seen here from the NW at the summit of Pacaya volcano with Tecuamburro volcano on the center horizon.  Four cinder cones are located on the NE flank of the Plio-Pleistocene Pueblo Nuevo Viñas, and lava flows from the volcano cover the western portion of the Cuilapa quadrangle.  Flank activity from Tecuamburro volcano has occurred as recently as about 3000 years ago. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1999 (Smithsonian Institution).
