IIRC, there's a super volcano in NM, too. But I think it's been dormant sooooooooo long that folks consider it a REAL HAS BEEN.
I don't recall where it is.
Ahhhh . . . links:
VALLES CALDERA NATIONAL PRESERVE'S HOMEPAGE:
VALLES CALDERA: THE TRILOGY: [some neat pics and the title of a video]
These calderas and associated volcanic structures lie within the Jemez Volcanic Field. This volcanic field lies above the intersection of the Rio
Grande Rift, which runs north-south through New Mexico, and the Jemez Lineament, which extends from southeastern Arizona northeast to western
Oklahoma. The volcanic activity here is related to the tectonic movements of this intersection.
