After our Salt Flats disappointment yesterday we moved on heading to Craters of the Moon National Monument in Idaho. It started early and lasted most of the day checking out the lava fields leading to the “monument” and climbing hills…so many hills. It really is an incredible sight and very informative. They did a great job with signage and their efforts to research and preserve the area.
We also drove through Arco where there has been a lot of research around nuclear energy. It was the first town to use electricity generated from a nuclear power plant and a lot of research on nuclear submarines was done in the desert. Go figure.
Here are some pictures. I’ll see you tomorrow.
