Point Two Mile Up.

Spatter Cones Trail

Yep, it was only a .2 mile walk the side of this large cinder cone but it got my attention.  
Must be the altitude.  Yeah, that's it and also why I forgot to take a photo.

At the top you had a grand view all around.  You were also supposed to see
the line of cones following the rift in the earth's crust that leaked out
all this lava as recent as 2000 years ago.

I was distracted and impressed as to how this one big tree came to be at the top.

And how this looked like it belonged on the ocean beach with all the other driftwood.

They came from Illinois to take in the view.
