This was the original Volcanic National Monument. This was the first one I ever saw and none of the others have come close.

There is a big lava mound you can hike to the top of and get "Nice" panoramic views of the area from. 

The thing I liked about Craters of the Moon is that it is old enough that the black stuff was starting to turn in to "Red Dirt" which is the next phase of what the wicked looking black stuff turns in to.

The above is the obligatory Crater Shot...

And of course the wicked looking Lava - and last is a "Trail Shot". Craters of the Moon is a cool little place to visit for a couple hours.
