Volcán de Colima was constructed within a large horseshoe-shaped scarp formed by repetitive collapse of a previous edifice. The northern scarp rim forms the arcuate ridge to the far-left of this view from the SW. The modern cone was built over the past 2,600 years and had grown to a height of 400 m above the caldera rim at the time of this 1997 photo. Lava flows form much of the flanks.
