A SE-trending chain of scoria cones extends beyond the flank of Sangangüey volcano into the Tepic basin. Cerro el Molcajete, the flat-topped cone to the right, shares the name of Volcán el Molcajete on the NW flank of Sangangüey. This NW-SE-trending alignment of Pleistocene basalt and mugearite scoria cones is seen here from the south across farmlands near the village of El Limón.
