Monogenetic volcanic cones of the Chichinautzin volcanic field lie below the western flanks of Iztaccíhuatl volcano.  These cones, including Cerro Tenayo at the lower left, lie at the easternmost extension of the 90-km-wide Chichinautzin volcanic field south of the Valley of Mexico.  The compound Iztaccíhuatl volcano is mostly Pleistocene in age.   Photo by Hugo Delgado, 1994 (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México).
