The wild and explosive past of northwest New Mexico

Season 10 Episode 1003 | 26m 46s

New Mexico’s northwestern quadrant has been home to a 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.
