Pico de Orizaba, also known as Citlaltépetl ("Mountain of the Star")  is seen here from the south. The snow-free peak to the left is Sierra Negra, a Pleistocene volcano that was active simultaneously with Orizaba. These volcanoes mark the southernmost extent of the Cofre de Perote-Pico de Orizaba volcanic chain. Photo by José Macías, 1996 (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México).
