Sunset Crater Volcano, Arizona

We just stopped here on the way to somewhere else, and it was awesome:

Sunset Crater's aa lava trail, where you get to walk right through the lava field:


The cinder cone, only about 900 years old:



There are various trails and many interesting interpretive signs around the national monument.  What I found most interesting was the progression of recover, still very obvious with such a "young" volcano.

Plus, it's connected to Wapatki National Monument with very cool Native American ruins.  See my next post.  :)
