Craters of the Moon National Monument – Idaho

Our first day trip since we moved to Idaho, was to visit Craters of the Moon National Monument back in September 2021. It was really very windy the day we visited. I hope y’all enjoy the photos.

no. My plant ID app thinks it might be Cottonweed.

    1. Thank you!
      It is certainly worth a visit. I did not know that there are caves to explore so we did not come prepared with headlamps. So when you go, if you want to check out the caves, remember to bring some flashlights or something to see with!
