Summer Trip 2021, Craters of the Moon National Monument, central Idaho

 Craters of the Moon

Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve is located in the Snake River Plain in central Idaho. There are three lava fields that lie along the Great Rift of Idaho. The geological features in this park our other worldly giving one a sense of how powerful the internal energy of the earth has shaped the features here not to far in the distant past in terms of geological time spans.

Our Campsite was nestled in between Lave Rock making for a unique experience that fit right into the theme of the park. We had flush toilets nearby with paved sights which we like to keep our home a bit cleaner.

The features of this unique landscape are volcanic but also are teaming with life. We marveled at the small clusters of flowering blooms that covered the landscape in areas that had gentle slopes. 

Craters of the Moon left us with a feeling that the powers that have made our planet are still there just below the surface waiting to release the energy that created so many landscapes over time.
