Another world


Ice on the floor of the Lava tube, I still have a big lump from when I fell just getting into the tube.

Lava flow field, it really is a strange landscape.

The path through the lava flow to the lave tubes. It is not that easy to walk on, when trying to pass other people.

On our recent screwed up Glacier trip, we stopped by Craters of the Moon National
Volcanic Monument in Idaho. It is a small national park, with a ton of interesting landscapes. There were cinder cones, incredibly large lava flows, and lava tubes. You can explore the lava tubes if you have flashlights that are pretty powerful, and if you can brave the ice in the tubes. I fell before even entering the tube. The ice in the tubes will be the subject of my next post. Stay tuned! Totally worth it to go and at least drive the seven mile one way loop, even if you do not hike any of the trails.
