    Do Not Pick Up-Touch or walk on

    by BruceDunning Written Oct 19, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The lava flows are sensitive and that is why they closed the access to the Sunset Crater back in 1973 because it was learned the walk up the mountain side was ruining the cinder cone and the environment for future grow of plants in the fertile mineral rich rock. Tracks up to the top and the trail still can be seen. The warning is to not do anything against the law, or face minimum $325 fine for defacing, damaging, walking where not allowed, or taking artifacts/rocks.
