Farmlands encroach on the radially dissected slopes of La Malinche volcano in this 1999 satellite image.  Deep canyons cut the flanks of this solitary stratovolcano NE of the city of Puebla.  The late-Pleistocene Xalapaxco maar complex forms the small circular area in farmlands on the lower ENE flank.   NASA Landsat satellite image, 1999 (courtesy of Loren Siebert, University of Akron).
