On to Arizona and the Sunset Crater Volcano
We like Arizona and were happy to see the state line. Arizona is a state of great contrasts -- in the north, where we are, you will be at some 7,000' in elevation and experience cold nights, even in the summer. Just a few hours south, however, the elevation drops dramatically and temperatures soar in the Phoenix area.
What is amazing about these flows is how they look like they just cooled. There is very little vegetation in the area and the rock is still knife-edge sharp.
