#mylens Mt. Taylor Volcano and Lava Beds

Standard

The first photo is a volcano that erupted repeatedly creating Mt. Taylor which is located off Interstate 40 near Grants, New Mexico. Below the mountain are miles of lava beds that show the random flow and distance the lava traveled. Mt. Taylor is a Stratovolcano and was active between 3 and 1.5 million years ago.
