The flat-topped Hoya el Huanillo cinder cone, located about 35 km NE of Parícutin, erupted during the early Holocene about 9300 years ago. It is seen here from the NW with the town of Cherán in the left distance near the Cerro Cucundicata cinder cone. In contrast to many other Michoacán cinder cones, only a small ash-covered lava flow was emitted from Hoya el Huanillo.
