On a side note, did you see all the unique dirt drawing's in the caldera of the volcano, interesting...
The park's chief attraction is its bizarre and mind-boggling scenery. About 3 or 4 million years ago, an erratic series of volcanoes erupted in what is now the Pinacate lava field. Hundreds of blank cinder cones and craters mark the surface. You can visit some of the largest, including El Elegante, from the park entrance off Highway 2.
The largest crater, El Elegante, is also the most visited. It takes a two to three-hour hike to reach the crater, and the path is well-marked. There, the view is simply awesome. The crater is 1,400 meters (4,600 feet) from rim to rim and 140 meters (460 feet) deep.
There are also places in the reserve where it hasn't rained for years. The park's dune fields can be accessed via Highway 8 and a 4 kilometer (2.5 mile) dirt road the heads west near the Kilometer 73 marker.
Some of these lava fields were used to train U.S. astronauts heading to the moon during the Apollo space program.

The residents of Ejido Oaxaca, located south of the Cerro Prieto geothermal fields, spoke of volcanoes of water that erupted on their streets and inside their homes. The area is one of intense seismic activity, but most of the quakes have been small, and no one expected one of such magnitude. As the earth shook Sunday, the water gushed through cracks in geysers of warm, rust-colored water.
