The aftermath of a volcano formed City of Rocks, near Deming, at the junction of NM 61 and U.S. 180. A large volcano erupted about 34.9 million years ago forming the rocks that tower 40 feet high. Erosion over time created the rounded columns that are separated by paths. (Courtesy of New Mexico Tourism Department)
