Several volcanoes of the Chichinautzin volcanic field can be seen in this aerial photo from the NE. To the lower left is Volcán Teuhtli with a small cone on its summit to the far left. The lava flow with steep flow boundaries in the center of the photo descending diagonally to the right is the massive Xicomulco lava flow. Volcán Cuauhtzin, in the background to the right, emplaced widespread lava flows.  Photo by Gerardo Carrasco-Núñez, 1997 (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México).
