Isla San Luis is seen here from the south with a 2-km-long spit (at low tide) to the lower left. The main features of the island are a rhyolite lava dome forming the NW tip of the island, the darker rhyolitic obsidian dome and coulee in the center, and an eroded tuff ring at the SE tip of the island (to the right). Another tuff ring, Isla Poma, lies 1 km NE of Isla San Luis and is visible to the right.
