    and I am glad that you mentioned it, Ian S. It's been off-limits for hiking for many years, though before that I did get to walk the rim, once the tough climb to the summit was made. But O'leary, which is one of the larger scoria cones in that vicinity, is do-able (and permitted to climb). It's also a tough climb, and more, since it's much larger. Lenox Crater I did not hike. Tell me about it. And of course, Wupatki, "Long House," in Hopi, I think, is one of my very favorite national monuments. I'll be doing a write-up on same one of these days. Anyway, thanks for posting your comment and for the reminder of, well, an inverse analogy, I guess you can call it, of a crater vs. a rising throne with a crater inside.

    Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
