A young scoria cone rises above cactus-covered terrain NE of the town of La Purísima. The Comondú-La Purísima volcanic field, located in southern Baja California, west of the Sierra de la Giganta, has been active from the Miocene to the Quaternary. The youngest lava flows are mostly located in the area between the Comondú and La Purísima rivers.
