Ixpaco crater is a 1-km-wide maar on the NW flank of Tecuamburro that formed during an explosive eruption about 2,900 years ago. An acidic lake fills the maar, and fumaroles, acid-sulfate hot springs, and mud pools occur around the lake. Colloidal sulfur turns the lake a milky green color. This view is from the north with the forested lava domes of Cerro Miraflores (left) and Cerro Pena Blanca (right) in the background.
