Dror Baron: Idaho (8.2001)


We continued from Wyoming to Idaho, where we visited Craters of the Moon National Monument.

This is a typical view in the park. Repeated volcanic eruptions during the last 11,000 years have shaped an unusual landscape.

In the "Devil's Orchard" part of the park, there are many bizarre shapes, which were caused when the molten lava dried up.

Note the growth on this stone, and its grotesque shape.

The porous lava swallows up most of the precipitaion in the area, but there are some flowers.

This cinder cone is quite large, as can be seen from the size of the people in the picture.
