Rocks  & Volcanoes

What's the difference between a pink rock and a black one? How does a volcano explode?  Will the many extinct  volcanoes in our state ever erupt again? Are Mars red rocks like New Mexico red rocks?

An optional Sunday Fossil and Rock Hunt Field Trip to Sandia Mountain Center will be offered in February.
