Toledo construction volunteers on Sunday (March 21, 1999) outing to Playa Grande approach Isla El Tigre.
Ash beds exposed by quarry - photographic evidence. This ash was observed behind a beachfront restaurant at the south end of Playa Grande. A second deposit of layered black ash was seen (but not photographed) from the road between Playa Grande and Amapala, about 900 meters to the east-northeast.
