Description
Horizontal view of an isolated old rainforest giant tree near the top of Cerro Verde National Park in El Salvador Central America looking out over the coastal cloud belt on the Pacific Coast--not far from the Guatemala border. Note the afternoon cumulo-nimbus clouds roiling upward with the wet season tropical heat creating a beautiful backgdrop for a silhouette of the beautiful rainforest giant tree. The Izalco which is nearby and was temporarily covered with clouds--was very active until about 2001 and had been known for about three centuries as "the Lighthouse of the Pacific" because its very regular and fiery eruptions could be see easily at sea by ships. The adjacent volcano--Santa Ana--is now more active and recently threw out (in 2006) a fiery, steaming eruption of hot gases, water, and viscous/fluid lava flows that burned some of the cloud forest and forced people to flee from small villages down slope near the large Caldera Lake of Coatepeque.
