Those of us who went to Albuquerque, NM found eclipse conditions perfect. No clouds interfered with the eclipse, and the eclipsed Sun provided a spectacular sunset.

I have a picture of me and a buddy mooning the eclipse.

Do you think they'd let me post it?

Calling Albuquerque the Ring of Fire is tectonic blasphemy. Only the people living along the Pacific Ocean get to make that claim. New Mexico's earthquakes and volcanoes are whimpy, and the closest thing we have to a tsunami is when someone who frequents all-you-can-eat buffets accidently falls in to Tingley Pond.

lobo viejo of old--impostor you--only the PacificOcean get that claim? says who? Albuquerque has pre-historic volcanoes all around and volcanic stone makes the ever-churning wind swept sandy dust. you have to let your mind get away from TODAY and sure enough, there's a Ring of Fire where you put it. Albuquerque it is.
I don't mean any disrespect to Albuquerque's volcanoes, as I never met a volcano I did not like. But take a picture of the West Mesa volcanoes, then go up to Seattle on a sunny day and take a picture of Mr. Ranier, then compare the two. I think you will see my point. If you are worried that the West Mesa volcanoes might blow up like Mt. St. Helens, I can get you volcano hazard insurance to protect your house. For a nominal additional cost, I can also add meteorite impact protection to your insurance policy.

<quoted text>showing your age again, how 'dense' can one get? We are talking eons and your short-sightedness of TIME, letting yourself float with the times. You are 'viejo' and getting older and feeling as a martyr would feel. Don't jest about volcano insurance to me. Make sure yours covers 'lack of trust''lack of sensitivity' and will cover you for RIDICULE. But to prove no hard feelings, my passport is ready to travel to a "real European volcano' AT YOUR EXPENSE, OF COURSE.
If you want to experience the real thing, I would recommend Vanatu in the South Pacific. It's a little hard to get to and expensive since you fly to Australia first, and a little dangerous since you get so close to an unpredictable erupting volcano with only a local guide, but well worth it when you crest the rim. Boiling lava is the best, worst is when she has numerous explosions that hurl rocks in the air. Rarely does the government close it for safety.
