Several maars of the Apastepeque volcanic field are seen in this vertical aerial view. The two lake-filled maars are Laguna de Apastepeque (the light-colored lake at the lower right) and Laguna Chalchuapa (the dark-colored lake at the right-center). SW of it is the large dry maar Hoyo de Calderas, and other dry maars appear at the upper left and lower right. The Pan-American highway cuts across the bottom of the photo, and the town of San Esteban Catarina is at the lower left, immediately west of Cerro Las Delicias lava dome.
