Cerro el Pueblito (upper left), radiocarbon dated at about 29,000 years ago, was the source of the lava flow that extends eastward across the photo.  The older cone of Cerro las Cabras (upper right) partly deflected the flow.  The irregular dark-colored area south of the lava flow is La Vibora, a "coneless lava flow."  Cerro Arena is the symmetrical cinder cone in the center of the photo.  The large forested area on the right side of the photo is Cerro Tecolote, an eroded stratovolcano with flank cinder cones.
