A friend of mine Alan Murray, and Brian Davidson and his family, recently took a day trip to see the Craters of the Moon. Alan and Brian are part of a team of individuals from around the world who explore cool places and then report about it on their website. Kind of like I do, but on a much grander, more professional scale. A good comparison would be National Geographic (them) meets Star magazine (me).
Anyway, check out their website Uncharted.net for lots of good information you need to know before visiting the Craters of the Moon. They talk about how to get there, what to expect, what to bring, and show you lots of cool pictures. They advise going in the spring time.
After you check out the Craters of the Moon look around their website for other neat things to see and do around our state and the whole world. I especially liked the story on the alligators in Hagerman. Real alligators in Idaho. I had no idea.
