  Title: Colima Volcano, State of Jalisco, Mexico
  Description:
  Located about 125 km south of Guadalajara, state of Jalisco, Mexico, the 
  13,325 ft. Colima (19.5N, 103.5W) is the most active volcano in Mexico. 
  The  activity depicted occurred in early March 1991 with avalanches
  followed soon  after by lava extrusion with ash and steam emission from the
  caldera.  The  steam plume can be seen drifting eastward from the summit
  and groundscars  from the earlier avalanches can also be seen on the
  southwest slope.
