Damn shame the NM health dept shut down the Capulin restaurant. Best burger twenn there and yonder.If your near Raton and the Colorado Border -- Capulin Volcano National Monument -- you have to get there pretty early the road going up( entrance) to the crater edge closes early around 4PM -- but the area closes at sunset -- excellent views -- many many years ago I saw distant thunderstorms to the north in Colorado moving southeast toward Kansas and Oklahoma you could make out tornados forming trying to drop down, pretty impressive -- all kinds of nasty weather, but where we were the weather was excellent, beautiful day !!!!! -- we were able to walk down into the crater. Impressive day !!!!!!
Good luck planning and going on your quest !!!!!!!
