Sunset Crater at night

After spending an hour or so at Montezuma's Castle, Jim and I headed up to Flagstaff. The area around Flag has a number of volcanos and cinder cones. The most recent to erupt, Sunset Crater northeast of town, was created about 1000 years ago. About an hour after sunset, the moon, one day after full, rose and illuminated the eastern slope of Sunset Crater. Stars and the Milky Way are visible, but the moon, light from Flagstaff and lingering twilight kept the sky a little bit bright.

Thanks! The entire four days was a lot of fun and we both took over a thousand images, so you'll be seeing a lot in the next few days.

BTW, good to see you are still checking in!
