Las Tres Vírgenes is viewed here from the SSE along State Highway 1. The steep-sided Pinto dacite coulée dome is the notable feature on the SW flank (left). Directly in the center, on the S flank, are the Virgen dacite lava domes. The lava flows across the bottom of the photo are part of the Miocene Esperanza Basalt.
