Spent last night camping at Craters of the Moon National Monument. It didn’t really look like what I think of as the moon, but it was quite an expanse of a’a (Hawaiian for sharp painful jagged lava – much like the sound you make when it’s in your sandal- ah! ah!) and pahoehoe (pa-hoy-hoy – smoother flowing lava). We hiked around quite a bit in the wind, and rolled out this morning.
Happy Mothers Day to our moms – Val and Phebe! And shout out to all the other great moms we know 🙂
Scott in the a’a
Not sure what you call this one…lava goo?
