The El Norte lava flows of Ceboruco in the foreground cover much of the northern flank. These young flows erupted from vents within the inner summit caldera and may have been emplaced during one of two 16th-century eruptions. The lava flows traveled 3.5 km down the north flank and formed a broad, 3.5-km-wide front at the base of the volcano. The volcano with the irregular profile in the left distance is Tepetiltic; Sangangüey forms the peak to the far right. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1997 (Smithsonian Institution).
