Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-03722
A group of nearly a dozen scoria cones and lava flows were erupted during the late Pleistocene on the floor of the southern Colima graben immediately NE and NW of the Colima volcanic complex. Cerro Apaxtepec (left center), one of these young cones, is seen here with the peak of Nevado de Colima in the center-background. A small plume rises from the active Fuego de Colima volcano to the left.
