The Volcán Sudoeste scoria cone, and smaller cones at its base, are part of the San Quintín volcanic field in México's Baja Peninsula. They are seen here from the north on the slopes of Picacho Vizcaino. Volcán Sudoeste is one of the youngest scoria cones of the field.  Photo by Jim Luhr, 1990 (Smithsonian Institution).
