Sunset Crater National Monument
Elevation - 8,026ft
Another famous Arizona landmark was checked off the "must-see" list this weekend as we made a side trip to Sunset Crater National Monument. This area is a fascinating piece of geologic history, the surrounding landscape shows just how recently the land was shaped by volcanic activity, and most of the area is closed to hiking. Although, Matt and I did tour the Lava Flow trail to get a better look at the bizarre rock formations.
