Craters of the Moon – High 64 Low 44
We have been to Craters of the Moon a couple of times but this was the first time we stayed in the campground. Once again we had no contact with the outside world which is really kind of nice but I did miss my cell phone.
We had a really nice pull thru site but the girls kept dragging in little black pieces of lava rock in their paws.
During our previous visits we were either rained on or snowed on. This time the skies were overcast but we didn’t get any rain until our last night.
There is a loop drive through the park and we are constantly amazed at the number of people who tear through the park and don’t take the time to enjoy the strange beauty of the landscape. We took our time exploring and pulled over every chance we got to let those folks roar on past.
These little white flowers grow everywhere and are called Dwarf Buckwheat.
How about a Halloween Tree?
We went into Arco and found a laundromat. Desperately needed to get some laundry done. We took Jan’s advise and did NOT eat at Pickle’s Place. We found a deli and had the best sandwiches. They were huge and we had enough for lunch the next day. Jim also ordered an Italian Soda and it was wonderful. I actually helped him finish it and I usually don’t drink anything but water.
If you have never visited this area, you should put it on your bucket list. It really is an volcanic wonderland.
