Craters of the Moon
|There is a
trail at about the first stop on the loop drive.
This is called the North Flow.
|Hopefully this photo portrays how interesting the old lava flows can look.|
|While wandering along the
trail, one arrives at this old gnarled tree.
There is a plaque that gives a discussion about scientific efforts to date this tree.
It ended up proving to be much older than people first anticipated.
|An old river of lava.|
|The placard said that these were pieces of a cone that had broken apart and flowed along with the lava until they were dropped here.|
