After Yellowstone we took a day and a half to drive around Montana and Idaho a bit more. On the way back to Salt Lake City, we stopped at the Craters of the Moon National Monument. It’s a humongous lava flow area. I’ve posted about the lava flow in Valley of Fires in New Mexico, but this is much more spectacular.
I’ve tried to be selective with my pictures, but I admit it was hard. I’ll just let them speak for themselves.
So that’s really all, folks.
Wonderful photos of a stunning landscape. The second-to-last reminds me of a spot in Tennessee, oddly enough. http://www.flickr.com/photos/abnetsel/7500849114/in/photolist-cqPP7J-cqPBb9-cqPVym-cqPzfJ-cqPQ4J-cqPSK7-cqPLSG-cqPZDW-cqPZyU-cqPCnC-cqQ24N/lightbox/
My photos are of a huge lava tube. Maybe the thing in Tennessee is also a lava tube?
Spectacular! What’s up with the unicorn? 🙂
That’s R’s unicorn. It came along on the trip and had to pose for several photos.
