Lava Bed National Monument
Today Glen and I went to the Lava Bed National Monument in California. It was the first time I have ever seen the results of volcanic activity. It is amazing to me how old the area is and still very little plant life exists. It was like being on a totally different planet. The cool part of the monument is Captain Jack’s Stronghold. This is where the Modoc Indians withstood the U.S. Army for almost five months. There is also some very cool petroglyphs.
This picture is me walking the trail along Captain Jack’s Stronghold.
This is a lava flow. It is thousands of years old but still looks like this….
This is a picture from Petroglyph Point.
There were also caves/lava tubes that we got to trek through. The only light in the caves were the flashlights that we took with us. It was a lot of fun.
