The orange-brown ridge in the background is a thick, blocky basaltic-andesite lava flow of probable Holocene age that is part of the San Borja volcanic field. The flow is seen here from state highway 1 in central Baja California. The sparsely vegetated flow is one of many youthful lava flows of the San Borja volcanic field. Holocene lava flows of the San Borja field occur near Rosarito and Morrow San Domingo, at the western end of the San Borja region north of the Vizcaino peninsula.
