Auquihuato, Cerro
"A young cinder cone, Cerro Auquihuato, lies about 30 km NE of Sara Sara volcano. Along with other, older cones, it is perched on an isolated high plateau far from the nearest roads, east of the Río Ocona. The Cerro Auquihuato cinder cone was constructed along the southern rim of the plateau and fed a pristine lava flow with very prominent levees that traveled southward down a river valley dissecting the margins of the plateau."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
