Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument Map

The cinder cone volcano’s rim is the dusky red of sunset, but the crater is only part of the story. Around 1085 the ground began to shake, and lava spewed high into the air. When the eruption finished, it had changed both the landscape and the people who lived here. Today, it teaches how nature and humankind affect each other”and how rebirth and renewal happen in the wake of disaster.
