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. Aerial photo by Comisión de Estudios del Territorio Nacional (CETENAL), 1970.
