Craters Of The Moon

photo used with permission

Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve is a U.S. National Monument and National Preserve in the Snake River Plain in central Idaho. The protected area's features are volcanic and represent one of the best-preserved flood basalt areas in the continental United States.

Comprising of other-worldly lava-formed landscape, the Craters of the Moon National Monument is one of the strangest geographic areas in the USA. Harsh, dry and largely barren, this craggily beautiful area has been left untouched by a humanity that has never figured out a use for it.
