Photo Gallery

One of the many youthful cinder cones of the Jaraguay volcanic field is seen here from the SW across the Arroyo San José. Two basaltic-andesite lava flows of probable Holocene age issue from a breach in the cinder cone. The Jaraguay volcanic field is the largest young volcanic field of Baja California. Located in northern Baja between Jaraguay and Arroyo San José, it contains numerous youthful-looking cinder cones and lava flows.
