[Moblog] Capulin Volcano

In the northeastern corner of New Mexico is one of the best preserved 'extinct' volcanoes in North America: the Capulin Volcano National Monument.

A short drive from US-64, and about 30 miles from Interstate-25, Capulin has a paved road to the rim of the shield (although the drive up, on the outboard side of the road, could use a few more guardrails.....).

There is also a short trail into the ancient caldera, right to the now-sealed vent. Shelby did the trail twice.
