El Malpais BLM Area NM
This small, 4-site, free camping area is actually an abandoned piece of the old highway. In fact, to the left of this photo and up and over the volcanic rocks, vehicles whizz by at 60 mph. But here in The Narrows there is complete quiet and, this day in August 2001, a photographer's dream - a huge collection of wildflowers at their blooming best!
