Craters of the Moon National Monument in central Idaho has long been on my list of places to visit and a couple of weeks ago, I popped in briefly on my way to Ketchum, Idaho. It was a surreal place. You could almost see time. Primeval frozen lava flows and my favorite — gnarly limber pine trees — combined in a compelling, graphic texture. Limber pines have been known to live more than 1,600 years.
Powerful images. A bit intimidating, but thrilling place.
