The Sunset Crater Volcano erupted about 900 years ago. It left lava flows in the San Francisco Peak Volcano field area, in northern Arizona. This field area of nearly 2000 square miles, contains around 600 identified volcanoes. The Sunset Crater Volcano is considered dormant by geologists. Here are a few shots that show the textures along the lava flow trails.
