Craters of the Moon National Monument

The Rift possesses the highest positive magnetic polarity on Earth.
As the magma rose
silica crystals aligned.
You are standing on a magnet
rooted twenty miles deep in electromagnetic reality.
If you're not in tune now, you'll never be.

A very interesting place. I would have liked to spend longer than just 1 1/2 hours there. There were some great hikes and lava tube caves to explore. Perhaps another time if we're up this way. It's about 70 minutes from Idaho Falls.

Your photos are magnificant! I got to your blog as I was writing on mine and in blogger, there's a place that you click for the "next blog". You site is right after mine.

I'll have to add the Craters of the Moon National Monument on my list of places to go now that I am an empty nest parent!
