This photo shows an ash plume rising above Parícutin on 9 June 1943, seen here from the Uruapan highway to the east. Prevailing winds distribute the ash plume to the south. Other scoria cones appear on the horizon, some of the 1,000-plus scoria cones within the massive Michoacán-Guanajuato volcanic field.
