Idaho National Monuments


Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve

5/29/1995 On to Craters of the Moon National Monument [NPS and BLM]. Heavy volcanic area, with many cinder cones and lava flows. Climbed up a black hill of cinder for a great view of the lava area and the snow-capped mountains in the distance. Hiked on many trails. Saw snow/ice still in a deep narrow cinder cone, and climbed a little way down into a lava cave.

Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument

9/15/2005 Headed west to Hagerman, arriving at Hagerman Fossil Beds NM visitor center at 9:00, unfortunately still closed. Got some brochures outside and went a short ways across the Snake River to the NM. Not a whole lot here; nice views of the hills with fossil strata and the river. Took a short hike along the Oregon Trail.
