Craters of the Moon National Park

We make a brief overnight stay in this gigantic lava bed in southern Idaho, finding the sparse landscapes punctuated by spry limber pines and stark wildflowers appealing. A nice stretch of trail runs from our campsite past the rims of a few craters and down to the smaller “snow cone”, a crater that preserves snowpack within. The pumice is surprisingly nice to run on barefoot. A few stretches of pahoehoe slow me down quickly, and I don’t even think of crossing a stretch of aa.
