Cabezon Peak is a volcanic plug (the solidified throat of a volcano, once the volcano has eroded) near the Ojito Wilderness just north of Albuquerque New Mexico. It resembles the Devil's Tower in Wyoming. It's surrounded by some 50 volcanic peaks as part of the Mt. Taylor Volcanic Field, but remains the largest in the area (with the exception of Mt. Taylor itself--which is a stratovolcano reaching over 11,000 ft.). Not many people associate New Mexico with volcanos, but the many volcanic fields contribute to many of the state's most notable landmarks.
