Izalco volcano rises beyond the Cerro Verde flank to the left, as seen from the trail to the summit of Santa Ana. Hotel de la Montaña was constructed at the summit of Cerro Verde to provide a view of the Izalco erupting, which occurred frequently since 1770. By the time the hotel was completed, the eruption of Izalco had ended. Photo by Lee Siebert, 2002 (Smithsonian Institution).
