Craters of the Moon National Monument

The Strangest 75 square miles on the North American continent
-Comment from an early traveler.

The landscape before you was explosively created by volcanic eruptions. Cracks in the earth's crest allowed lava to blast, plop, and flow onto the surface to form such unusual features as cinder cones, monoliths, and caves.The entrance to this imposing place, known today as the Craters of the Moon National Monument, is just down the road. Stop at the visitor center to see the exhibits, then take the seven-mile loop drive through the monument. Craters of the Moon offers a variety of experiences for those who want to explore this unusual ocean of black rock. (Inscription in the photo) The moon-like landscape includes monoliths, cinder cones, and seasonal wild flowers.
