On the Way Home  Sucess!

Hiked all the trails at Capulin on the way home from Black Mesa. It is a wonderful little monument with beautiful 360 degree panoramas. Don't forget the trails at the base of the volcano. They are short and cover some fun terrain.

Nice rim walk  Sucess!

Came here once before and it was socked in. Today, the sky was clear and it was pretty breezy at the top. Hiked the paved rim trail and got pretty nice views in all directions. Well worth the hike. The $15 vehicle entry fee seemed a bit steep though for such a small park.

Interesting Formation  Sucess!

Did this alongside: Baby Capulin, Twin Peaks. Walked the rim. Cool day. Would definitely go back.

Finally!  Sucess!

After three other stops here, twice very late in the evening and once in heavy snow, I finally made it here while the gate was open. Great trail up top, and another one into the cone. Lovely.

The rim hike  Sucess!

A quick stop on our cross country drive. I made a point of adding this to our itinerary once I discovered it was a national monument.

Crater Rim  Sucess!

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.

Pleasant hike in November  Sucess!

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

I hiked this one with crutches and an ankle compression boot while my wife waited in the car in the upper parking lot.

Nice  Sucess!

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.

Second time was the charm  Sucess!

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.
