New Mexico: Land of Enchantment

Mount Capulin

My parents almost always traveled westward for our holidays, and Mt. Capulin always seemed to be on our route. Of course, we always stopped. Who wouldn’t want to peer into a volcano? This is a cinder cone. Explosive outbursts of countless eruptions falling close to the vent formed the classic, steep-sided profile. Capulin is long dead; trees and grasses, cacti and lizards now dwell in its sleeping vent.

  1. I love what you’re doing, Dave. Traveling across the country and photo logging the trip is a dream of mine. Hubby and I are going to invest in a RV one day and set out to explore the nation.

    Keep the pictures coming! I can never get enough of them!
