El Malpais Nat’l Monument, Grants, NM - Nov 11, 2009

With a picnic lunch packed, off we went to explore El Malpais Nat’l Monument.  Well, what can I say, we were not impressed-but after being to Arches and Canyonlands-nothing can compare.  After finding one visitor center closed, we ended up taking the El Calderon three mile hike where there we saw a lava cave, bat cave (entrance only), and a double sink area.

Here is a photo of me at the entrance taken by Bob and one I took of Bob inside the lava cave.042 100 This sink in the lava was 80’ deep.


Loved these crescent seed heads on this 18” tall wild grass.


A final view of El Malpais.
