Kilbourne Hole Volcanic Crater
November 12, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Join Celebration of Our Mountains Board members on a field trip to this famous volcano, which is not only the youngest volcano in the El Paso/Juarez region, it is also where Apollo astronauts trained. Kilbourne Hole erupted tons of the August birthstone “peridot” which can be found all around the volcano. You will need a high clearance vehicle for this trip, or arrange ahead of time to carpool with someone in a high clearance vehicle. We will do a small amount of walking off trail, but the skill level is still beginner.
Meet on the north side of Rudy’s BBQ, 6401 South Desert Blvd. (MAP) and caravan from there. High clearance vehicles only. The trip is 6-hours long so make sure you have a full tank of gas, plenty of water, snacks, sturdy shoes and a hat.
Co-Leaders: Dr. Eric Kappus and Katalina Salas.
