Capulin Volcano National Monument ~ Fall Adventures 9.1.17 Part II

The drive was scenic to say the least, in the distance we could see the cone shaped mountain we thought to be the Volcano. Also we noticed cows grazing all over the beautiful countryside and there we no fences to be seen. I’m not sure how they keep up with their livestock.

Capulin Mountain is 8,182 ft, it was last active 60,000 years ago. It’s also one of the few extinct volcanoes that visitors can walk into.

Beautiful views from the top and a trail that allows you to walk the entire rim of the crater.

This is inside the crater, there is a monument at the bottom and someone is standing there reading it.

As we were leaving the park I snapped this photo, reminded me of Little house on the prairie!

We are off to Raton NM, then we will drive north into Colorado. I will post the day two adventures next. I was anxious to get into the Rockies!

Life’s an adventure!

  • Your life is what you make of it and I choose to make mine an adventure!

Traveling, discovering and seeing new places is one of my favorite things to do, I travel as much as my job allows, which means a lot of short trips close to home and an occasional longer journey to a new place I’ve yet to explore.

I love big cities, their museums, history and different cultures but I am mostly drawn to nature and the beauty of God’s handiwork.

I have purchased a National Park Passport and I am anxious to visit as many as I can along with some of the state parks in my area.

I find myself taking a lot of photos so I will never forget the places I’ve been and seen. Recently I’ve been thinking that a travel blog would be a great way to document my adventures although I’ve never blogged before, this will just be one more adventure I will try my hand at and embark on.
