I guess some people read that as "hype". I wonder what max would say if the USGS would try to keep the seismic history information secret.
Have you ever been to the Valles caldera? Its next to Los Alamos and I believe it was a park . Its a neat obsidian source (Im not sure they lt you "collect" any longer, I was there with guys from the labs)
I haven't been able to go anywhere in NM except the grocery store, the doctors' offices, and various hospitals, in ABQ and Rio Rancho and a fishing trip up to Monastary Lake.
Saw quite an eye full of beautiful and interesting geologic scenery on the drive from the SF Bay Area to ABQ via the southern route when I moved here. Would like to do that again through Arizona and New Mexico at a much slower pace so I can do more than just glance at things as they whipped by from the highway.
I have a list of things in NM I'd like to see some day. I'll add that to the list.
Next week I am doing a 11-hour marathon drive from ABQ to Austin, TX so will get a glance of the scenery along that route. If I have time when I return the following week doing the same 1-day drive, I'd like to go see the meteor crater in Odessa, TX. It doesn't look like too much of a detour.
While there, I'll check for any alien spaceships carrying the ebola virus.
