Loosely translates as The Bad Lands. The floor of the canyon is an ancient lava flow. Took these pictures last fall.
Camera: Nikon D40 X with a 55-200mm Nikon DX telephoto lens.

I live in Amarillo, and that looks like it's only a few hours drive from where I live. Might have to go check it out.

Thanks for the pics.

Ever run into my ex in Amarillo?
Dunno. Did she hang out at the biker bars in Amarillo? If so, then maybe we have crossed paths. If not, then the chances are slim.

National Monument........ And the fence is not on the lava field. I wouldn't have tried to cross that lava field back when I was a strong, in excellent shape 20 something, trying to just might be the last thing one does........

Well, Ringel, you might have just given me my next destination when I decide to go on vacation this year.

Most of the time, I go on a tour of the shops in CO.

About two hours north of El Malpais is Chaco Canyon, huge ancient pueblo ruins.
Capulin Volcano National Monument is about three hours north of you on Rte 87.
The Valles Caldera National Monument is a few hours northwest of Sante Fe.

Been past the Capulin Volcano quite a few times. Go past it every time I go to Colorado.
