Once again enjoy the beautiful view from the top of Capulin Volcano as the road has just reopened to vehicle traffic. With a view of four states, this extinct cinder cone rises around 1000 feet above the surrounding landscape giving excellent views of the other volcanoes in the Raton-Clayton Volcanic Field.
