Background:

El Pedregal, the most prominent Quaternary volcano in the highlands of central Honduras, is a low-angle basaltic shield volcano constructed on a high plateau of Miocene ignimbrites immediately west of the capital city of Tegucigalpa. A small ephemeral pond occupies a saucer-shaped summit depression. Isolated remnants of basaltic lava flows from El Pedregal and separate vents occur over broad areas primarily to the west, but NW nearly to the village of Zambrano. A small cone near Matasano produced reddish scoria during the only pyroclastic eruption in the Quaternary volcanic fields near Tegucigalpa.
