Craters of the Moon National Monument and PreserveLook for lava and ice stalactites ("lavacicles" and "icicles") on the ceiling and walls of this lava tube. They were formed by dripping hot lava and melting ice. Born of fire, this cave now retains ice year-round—a cool place to visit on a hot summer's day. It's dark in here! Bring a flashlight and protect your head. You must crawl over loose rock to enter, due to the low ceiling at the entrance. The floor of the cave can be a sheet of ice covered by several inches of water. Walk carefully on this slippery surface.
