Sleeping Monsters, Sacred Fires: Volcanoes of New Mexico - Look in any direction in New Mexico and you can find mountains that have blown their tops, rare maar volcanoes, cinder cones, lava flows and our very own super volcanoes. New Mexicos volcanoes have been decorating New Mexicos landscape for millions of years. In this COLORES! we see and learn about breathtaking examples of volcanism that span the state. But volcanoes have created more than stunning terrain. Over time, they planted the seeds of civilization and shaped the identity of New Mexico and its people. In this documentary we meet Native Americans who share their views of New Mexico's volcanoes and we meet the experts who help us better understand these geological marvels. Experts also consider the big question, when will these sleeping monsters come to life again? Welcome to the volcano state.
