Volcano near San Salvador... Izalco -- "relatively new"

The name of this volcano is IZALCO. It is a relatively new volcano as you can tell by the lack of vegetation on it's slopes. It used to be called the "lighthouse of the pacific" by the ships sailing to and from California around South America back in the 1800's when it was in full activity.
