Five small scoria cones are aligned NE-SW near the town of Amecameca at the far eastern end of the Chichinautzin volcanic field. The large cone to the lower left is Cerro Chinconquiat, the larger of the two cones at the mid-right is Cerro Tapeixte, and the smaller one at the far right is Cerro la Joya. The cone with radian erosion gullies to the left immediately above Cerro Chinconquiat is Cerro Tenayo. Photo by José Macías, 1996 (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México).
