Extensive hydrothermal alteration is visible in valley walls of a thermal area near the summit of Cerro Evermann.  Steam rises from fumaroles in this 1998 view.  The largest fumarolic vent is located at the head of a large barranca NE of the summit.  During a 1957 visit by Mooser and Bryan, temperatures of 65-97° C were measured.  Similar temperatures ranging from 61-101° C were measured in 1993. Photo by Martha Marin, 1998 (Mexican Navy).
