mountainhareCrater Rim  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 1, 2014


I first wished to hike from base to summit, but instead of doing a road walk, I lazily drove up the volcano and walked the crater rim. Great landscape here.

Nice hike around the rim in November - warm but not summer hot. Be sure to go down into the caldera too.

Stopped by on my way to Amarillo. Walked the Crater Rim Trail and the Crater Vent Trail. Beautiful views, and nice to learn about the geology of the area.

Beautiful day to visit the volcano. I hiked one of the lava flow trails down below then drove up to the rim and hiked the rim trail and crater trail. Love the views of the old lava flows from up top.

panhandletrailsFun Trip With My Kids  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 30, 1990


Took the road to the rim trail. Hiked as much as we were allowed to there. My daughter, age 7 at the time, asked "Daddy, will the volcano interrupt?"

SeanReedyFun with my kids!   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 7, 2011


We needed a break on a long road trip. My three year old girl hiked the paved rim trail with me while my one year old boy caught a ride in the backpack. I took some nice photos along the way, then lost my camera in the parking lot. We returned about a week later to pick up the camera on the way back west from Missouri.

mlandau3What Other Government  Sucess!


would have a road that spirals around a volcano? The hike around the summit and then down into the volcano is great. Btw, capulin is Spanish for choke cherry.

What a cool thing, full of life. Wish it was bigger, and wish they had camping. Great views.

We came across Capulin on the way from Black Mesa to Wheeler Peak. The views made the stop well worth while.

Great views from the top of one of the largest intact cinder cones in the world. Summited with my son Ian (in backpack) and my wife. Great weather for February - 55 degrees and blue bird skies!
