Capulan Volcano National Monument, New Mexico

Capulin  National  Monument  (pronounced Cap-oo-leen,  from  the  (Spanish word for chokecherry)  encompasses
700+ acres
 of  one perfect  specimen  of  volcanism,  Capulin  Mountain,  a  picturesque cinder cone with an ideal
caldera  sitting  1,800 feet
above the New Mexican landscape. The top of Capulin Volcano provides fantastic views.
To  the  east  spreads  the  relentless 
descent  of  the  plains  to  Oklahoma  and Texas. To  the  northwest  lie  the
white-capped Spanish Peaks and the Sangre de
Cristo  Mountains  of  Colorado.  To  the  south  lies  a small range
of  other  dormant  volcaos
.  Also in view is the Cimarron Cutoff of the Santa Fe Trail, the rough road thousands of
pioneers used to reach the southwest frontier during the 19th century.
