Lava flows from Parícutin (upper center) cover much of the northern third of the photo. The small white dot above and to the right of Parícutin is the NE-flank vent mound of Nuevo Juatita. The latest lava flows from Parícutin during 1952 originated from this vent and form the darker-colored flows that extend to the ESE. Cerro Tzirapan is the prominent older cinder cone at the right-center, and other older cones appear at the upper left.
