With so many things to do in Flagstaff, it can be difficult to decide how to spend your day. Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument offers an interesting landscape as you walk the Lava Flow Trail. The volcano erupted some time between the years 1040 and 1100, killing all the plant life in a five-mile radius. From the mineral-rich soil deposits left behind, new plant life is flourishing.
