National Park Service, Centennial One Object Exhibit

Although Capulin Volcano National Monument is known primarily for its volcanic geology, it has traditionally been a crossroads of human activity as diverse people and cultures traversed the area. In this photo, early visitors to the park learn about volcanic formations and stone tools left by the earliest inhabitants to the area. They are standing on the rim of the extinct volcano which had been largely inaccessible until the second park custodian, Homer Farr, procured funding in economically difficult times to build a road to the rim.
