As I mentioned in my review of Walnut Canyon, my brother is the Head Park Ranger for a few of these places, including Sunset Crater, so we got a very personal tour. But the park is well-suited to self-guided tours, as well. The path through the lava-flow gives you an up-close look at the power of nature. Also check out the twisting of the old pines that have survived centuries of harsh condisitions. We were very fortunate to meet and chat with an AmeriCorps team that was doing trail maintenance.
