Jorullo volcano, which erupted during 1759-1774, and associated lava flows are visible at the bottom of the photo. Four NE-SW-trending vents flank the main cone of Jorullo. The 1759-1774 lava flows appear in varying shades of gray, with the initial (and largest) flows being lighter in color (due to partial ash cover) and the most recent ash-free lava being darker and extending to the NW and NE. Jorullo lies about 80 km SE of Parícutin.
