PHOTO: A Foggy Autumn Morning Over the Valles Caldera by Andrew Gordon Photography

We love the peaceful solitude that this image of Valles Caldera imparts.

The Valles Caldera National Preserve is a 13-mile wide circular depression that was created by a massive volcanic eruption 1.25 million years ago.  Located between Los Alamos and Jemez Springs, Valles Caldera is an amazing place to visit and explore.
