A couple of Fridays ago, Pete had to work overtime (he normally does 10-hour days, 4 days a week). His work is about an hour's drive from our home. Out past his work, about 20 minutes or so, is an area called Craters of the Moon.
That morning, Pete texted me and said, "Hey, since I'm already out here, let's go to Craters." I was game.
I hadn't been there since I was a kid, maybe in 5th grade. So the kids and I drove out, and met Pete at his work.
They have a visitor's center, which is pretty cool. But they also have a bunch of hiking trails to go and see the sites up close and personal. We ended up going on the perfect day-it was kind of overcast and was sprinkling on and off, so it wasn't hot at all to walk amongst the mountains of black rocks everywhere.
