The Lava Field


We vowed to not grumble too much about the silliness of closed showers while we took the nature walk through the lava field.

The lava oozed out of the ground five thousand years ago.

Kind of amazing these plants can survive out of cracks in the lava.

There are no volcanos or cinder cones.  The ground just split open.

This Juniper tree is five hundred years old.
Mindless morons carved their initials on it.
Just thought you’d like to know.

See The Little House on the Highway up there?
This is on the road from the tent only area where there were only two tenters.
They have to pay $7 and don’t get to take a shower either.

View from my dining room window.
Our next destination is up in those mountains somewhere.

Wow, five thousand years ago is a blink in time. Watch out, the earth may suddenly open up and send lava coming up again! It is good there was that old tree there to break the monotony!
