Pico de Orizaba

This is a view from the third highest volcanic peak on the continent. Pico de Orizaba is Mexico's highest peak, and North America's highest volcano rising 18,491 feet above sea level. In Olmec mythology, it was believed that praying to the "eagle spirit" or Orizaba at the top of the peak would prevent any furious eruptions.
