Tree Mold Trail
Okay, when I first read this in the brochure that's what I thought. Once
there at the trail head I had an "oh I see" moment. This was a long one
mile hike in. Yeah, one mile isnt that far but it was mid-day, getting
hot and through a lava field. But I was glad I went to see the tree molds.
When the lava flowed it passed through a forest of trees. One tree
remained standing and left a perfect round core in the lava.
A few others fell and left their impressions where you can still see the
distinctive pattern in the bark. There are probably many more impressions
buried beneath the surface of the lava.
Looks like tire tracks from 2000 years ago. Hmm...
