The Canyon of the Rio Grande

Location: Near Taos, NM
Year: 1991
Merckslides catalogue number: 06-16924
Comments: One morning of GEO660 was spent touring the flood basalts near Taos. It takes a feature like this to drive home the amount of magma that had to be erupted to cover a large area with this thickness of lava.
