Arizona probably isn’t the first place that comes to mind when you think about volcanoes, but we actually have a handful. Among them is Red Mountain, an ancient cinder cone believed to be over a million years old. It has a distinct shape that differs greatly from other landforms of its kind, and you can hike into the unique geological formation to see it firsthand.
