Utah Volcano Sunset

Utah Inactive Volcanoes
Fillmore, Utah
Delta, Utah
Black Rock Volcano

The Pavant Valley near Fillmore doesn't look like much as you drive past it on Interstate Highway 15 (I-15), but it is home to a dense concentration of interesting geological phenomenon. Volcanoes such as Pahvant Butte, Red Dome, Tabernacle Hill, and Black Rock, all reside here. Not to mention miles upon miles of underground lava tubes and caves in Devil's Kitchen. There is also an abundance of springs in the area and it is the home to the Pahvant Petroglyphs.
I would like to go out there and tour the area, I heard it was incredibly interesting.

All of the volcanoes are inactive. The area can be accessed from Delta or Fillmore.
