Been a while since I updated, or since I even took my camera out to shoot some nice pictures. We made a very quick trip out to Craters of the Moon this weekend and did some nice hiking before a big storm rolled in. Here is what we got...
A lone rock resting on a field of marble sized cinders.
I love the contrast that the black cinders knolls have with the white clouds.
This is a closeup of the "pahoehoe" on the Blue Dragon Lava Flow. This flow contains the freshest lava rock in the park and some of the freshest in Idaho. Only about 2000 years old.
This picture taken right after we crawled out of the same lava tube, trying to get out of the rain. Very cool inside with the lava stalactites.

We literally stumbled onto this cavern while out on the flow hiking around. Looks like a fun exploration.

"Lava Tonsils" as Scarlet called them. This is what the inside of a lava spout looks like.
