The El Norte lava flows cover most of the N flank of Ceboruco volcano in western México. The south wall of the inner caldera forms the far summit ridge. The andesitic El Norte flows cover a broad area 3.5 km in length and forms a 3.5-km-wide lava flow field at the base of the volcano. Their youthful morphology and unvegetated surfaces suggest a young age, possibly during one of the two 16th century eruptions.
