“The Southwest's Supervolcano”
About 1.25 million years ago, a spectacular volcanic eruption created the 12-mile wide crater-shaped landscape now known as the Valles Caldera. The preserve is known for its huge mountain meadows, abundant wildlife, and meandering streams and for preserving the homeland of ancestral native peoples and embracing a rich ranching history.
Very neat place. The tourist part lives the cabin used in Longmire, we actually have a family history around a different cabin from the early 1900s. Rangers were super friendly, it’s worth driving to after Bandelier.
