A lake fills the youngest of four nested craters of Santa Ana volcano (top center).  A road winds at the lower right to radio antennas at the summit of forested Cerro Verde cinder cone, one of a series of volcanic cones constructed along a NNW-SSE-trending fissure cutting across Santa Ana.  The dark unvegetated areas at the bottom of the photo are the northern flanks of Izalco volcano. Aerial photo by Instituto Geográfico Nacional El Salvador, 1996.
