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