Craters of the Moon National Park
Friday when I got out of class I came home and half jokingly said "who wants to go to Craters of the Moon?" Kevin said "right now". I thought about it for a minute then realized that the road to the park will probably close soon so now would be the best time. "Yes," I replied. Within half an hour we were in the car with our cold weather gear and on the road. It wasn't really cold in the park, though a little brisk. The whole area is a cooled lava field complete with caves that you can walk through, and trails all over. We didn't go far into the caves because we didn't have a flashlight and cellphone light only goes so far. Perhaps we will return in the near future to actually go through the caves.
