The flanks of Izalco volcano contrast with the vegetated Cerro Verde in the foreground. Izalco rises about 300 m above the saddle separating it from Cerro Verde. This view shows the Pacific Ocean 40 km to the south with much of the area between underlain by deposits associated with a late-Pleistocene Santa Ana debris avalanche.
