Bad Land – Makoshika State Park, Montana

Now that I was home from Washington, I’d settled back into my mom’s house in Montana and was excited to spend the summer exploring. Our first family road trip was over Fourth of July weekend, when we packed up the car and headed east.

Lava Tubes – Craters of the Moon National Monument, Idaho (part II)

One of my favorite adventure activities is exploring caves. I’ve never truly gone spelunking (it's on my to-do list), but if we’re somewhere with a cave, we always sign up for the tours. As it happens, formation of caves in lava flows is fairly common, meaning there are a few caves at Craters of the Moon… Continue reading Lava Tubes – Craters of the Moon National Monument, Idaho (part II)
