The La Breña-El Jagüey maar complex is one of the youngest features of the Durango volcanic field. This view looks SW from the NE rim of El Jagüey toward La Breña maar and shows the laminated pyroclastic surge beds emplaced during the maar-forming eruptions. El Jagüey and La Breña are two intersecting maars, 700 and 1,400 m wide, respectively.
