the View from Capulin Volcano
Camera: K5 Photo Location: New Mexico 
Posted By: Bob Harris, 06-05-2012, 10:07 PM

We took a drive to the top of Capulin Volcano, elevation 8000', to view the high desert of New Mexico. We had a clear day where you could see Colorado in the background. Thanks for taking a look, what a view. Bob

Hi Bob, I agree, beautiful scenery, well captured! You might just as well be somewhere in the Karoo

Yes Christo, but there is one major thing missing, Animals. Thanks for looking.

I am kind of mesmerized by your first image Bob.

I like deep in the Western Pennsylvania mountains, and the view from any direction of my home is ~1/2 mile because of tall mountains shooting just about straight up all around my property. While I love living in the mountains for the past 20 years, I seem to have more and more of an urge to see wide open spaces and/or views like in your image.

Thanks for sharing your images - if I ever get the time and have the ability, I really need to get out west to see some of these grand views!

Yeah Charlie, when you are lost and traveling in circles, you tend to find something eventually.

Tess, having been in the desert for the last few months, this is like a forest to us...there are some trees and everything here.

Stan, this along with other s/w areas is wide open. This volcanic field is over 8,000 square miles large, which is about the size of Massachusetts. Yes, one day you must take a look out west. Thanks for looking and appreciating the photo. Bob

I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles

The Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal are mine to see on clear days
You thought that I would need a crystal ball to see right through the haze

Susan, It is in n/e New Mexico east of the I-25 near Raton Pass as you drop into Colorado. Basically in the middle of nowhere if that helps.
