very nice walk winds it way through these 5,000 year old lava beds. The lava here did not flow from a volcano, but from vents in the valley floor. This must have been a horrifying sight for paleo-man.
Many beautiful flowers make this harsh environment home.
I only saw this one lizard, though the information signs say the area is rich in fauna.
Tonight we are camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park. (33.31855, -104.33269) Some of our group are taking a sunset paddle around the lake. These lakes were formed by sink holes.
