After 4 days of cool temperatures, no wind and nights sleeping in the back of the truck in upper 30’s temperatures, we had a change of everything. We drove about 70 miles southeast to Craters of the Moon National Monument near Arco, Idaho. It was over 90° and windy.
We hiked around the lava and cinder cones and checked out the view. We even saw a horse pulled wagon along the road as its part of the Oregon Trail. Someone was reliving the past!
We checked out the lava tube caves and I sketched an extinct cone and lava fields in the broiling sun and wind. Allen & Tova were under a limber pine at a picnic table enjoying themselves.
