Craters of the Moon is a vast lava field that was formed over 8 eruptive geologic periods from 15,000 to 2000 years ago when what is now Idaho had active volcanoes.
|The North Crater--there are 2 major craters in the park.|
|I HAD to go see what a Devil's Orchard was!|
|Devil's Orchard - supposedly a Minister gave it it's name when he first saw it.|
|I think the plaque told me I was looking at a big black lava rock.|
|I didn't see a single bat in the cave I went through.|
|Black path through the black lava field.|
|They give you this ramp down into the cave but that's it after that.|
|Indian Tunnel's roof hole.|
|Believe it or not there's a foot path through this stuff.|
If you are ever in southern Idaho you HAVE to spend a day at Craters of the Moon, it's just awesome scenery and exploring the caves is a blast!
