Carrizozo Valley of Fires, NM lava flow 3280a

Carrizozo Valley of Fires, NM lava flow 3280a
Just west of Carrizozo is the Valley of Fires Recreation Area -- the campground there is one of the best maintained I've encountered, and has spectacular sunsets and sunrises across the lava flows, and back to the mountains east of Carrizozo.
The light was not cooperating for getting a picture of the lava flow. The flow is very large, starting from the low peak in the very far distance (see box on photo) and stretching for 44 miles (see the map). The railing in the picture is a paved walk through the lava flow.

Best viewed as part of New Mexico set.
