While flying over northern Arizona I wondered if the objects I thought were volcanoes, were really volcanoes. I was right! I bought the book Volcanoes of Northern Arizona and it was a great, interesting book. I saw it while at the Grand Canyon but didn't buy it. I was so glad to find it online at Powells.com. It makes my trips to that area much more interesting. Thanks
