Craters of the Moon National Monument

IMG_0792We visited this park in early September, 2015.  I try to keep current on my journal, but we are traveling with friends this month and I’m spending my free time visiting, rather than being on the computer.  I wasn’t sure that I would find this park interesting, but there was more than just lava rocks to see.  We took many pictures and since I don’t have a lot of time to spend on this post I’m going easy on the narration.
