    Well, Ringel, you might have just given me my next destination when I decide to go on vacation this year.

    Most of the time, I go on a tour of the shops in CO.

    About two hours north of El Malpais is Chaco Canyon, huge ancient pueblo ruins.
    Capulin Volcano National Monument is about three hours north of you on Rte 87.
    The Valles Caldera National Monument is a few hours northwest of Sante Fe.

    Been past the Capulin Volcano quite a few times. Go past it every time I go to Colorado.
