Volcano in New Mexico

On my journey, I passed through New Mexico. Enjoying the scenery and the rocky lands, I remember thinking at one point that "these rocks look awfully a lot like volcanic rocks." And along I went, merrily enjoying the scenic highway that looped around a large hill - or a small mountain.

Not long after that thought, I saw a small sign. Capulin Volcano National Monument.

I read up on this volcano tonight. This little beast last erupted 60,000 years ago. And apparently, there are at least 100 other volcanoes in northern NM and southern Colo.

A part of me wishes I had pursued geology or archeology. This is so fascinating!
