Backpacking in the wilderness of Craters of the Moon in Idaho.

I’ve just returned from a trek that covered 65+ miles of hiking over the volcanic lava fields in and around Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve here in South Central Idaho. Our expedition was a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Wilderness act and 90th anniversary of Robert Limbert’s National Geographic publication which described his exploratory adventure of the surreal landscape and was a primary factor in the establishment of the area as a National Monument. I’ll be working on an essay in the coming days and weeks and will update this post with the transcript. Until then, enjoy the images!
