What a Geologist Sees - Part 24b (Originally published 10/31/08)

Just a couple of photos from the City of Rocks State Park in Grant Co., NM, as referenced in the previous post. It is a neat place to camp, but one time I stopped there at night to show it to a friend as we were traveling through the area. In the moonlight, the "hoodoos" were just a little too spooky.

If memory serves me correctly, these pyroclastic ash flow tuffs were erupted from the very large Emory Caldera.
