The rugged terrain of this volcanic Mexican island reaches a maximum elevation of 1.3 kilometers. The island is about 35 kilometers long and is located 260 kilometers west of Baja California. Surrounding the island are marine stratocumulus clouds, with trailing expanses of clear area extending off the tip of the island. The beginnings of a vortex street are visible in the clouds toward the bottom edge of the image. This is a true-color Terra MODIS image from May 12, 2004.
