8/29/08 - Valley of Fires Recreation Area, New Mexico

As we left the RV park in Albuquerque we took pictures of a couple of classic cars with matching trailers. We stopped off in Soccoro to have lunch at Soccoro Springs Brewing, then we drove to Valley of Fires Recreation Area near Carrizozo, New Mexico where we camped. This area in the Tularosa Valley was covered by lava flows from vents in the valley floor 1,000 to 5,000 years ago. This flow is 2 to 5 miles wide, 44 miles long, and as deep as 165 feet. We hiked on a trail through the lava flow.
