In the Americas With David Yetman

The Wild And Explosive Past Of Northwest New Mexic

Season 10, Episode 3 of 10

For thousands of years, New Mexico's northwestern quadrant has been home to a wide variety of native peoples. The places they chose to live are a showcase of the powers of volcanoes and erosion. These natural monuments help define the territories these people have chosen and have become symbols for their homelands. Towering volcanic remnants shoot up from the earth while others record disruptive flows of lava that continue nearly to the present. Some formations defy normal human expectations.
