Cool place. From the summit, you can see "the largest free-standing mountain in North America."

I arrived here on an overcast day, on my way driving up to Denver for my next job. Wanted to bike the singlespeed up the road but road is closed to peds/bikes. Anyhow ran up to the summit from the visitor center and ran around the rim trail,then down to the vent and back to center. ~ 5 miles. Only 2 other old couples at the top. Nice views and alot of scruffy looking deer seen on the rim trail.

We stopped by on our way to Rocky Mountain National Park and spent more time there than we expected. The views are great from the loop trail.

Capulin Volcano: for me it was a solitary sight-seeing mark in my mapbook that I decided to check out on my way by. Actually, by the time I got there I needed a place to car-camp, and this I did on the volcano's north side (a dirt road led to a nice private spot).

The next day I succeeded in locking my keys in the car at the summit parking lot but a kindly other visitor helped me by using a like-sized key to unlock the old door lock. The trip around the crater rim trail loop was very windy. It howled at a sustained 30 MPH with gusts to 50. Even the bottom of the crater saw high winds. It would circle around, bending the tree branches vigorously.

The volcanism of the NE New Mexico area was news to me at the time. I was intrigued by the many vegetated cones dotting the area.
