Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve

5/29/1995 On to Craters of the Moon National Monument. 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.
