WEEK THREE: BIG SOUTHERN BUTTE
Driving east from Ketchum back to Idaho Falls for flight home from the Rockies trip, we experienced one final treat – we stopped right at sunset at Craters of the Moon National Monument. There were few tourists, other than the handful of campers parked and buttoned up for the night. A three-day weather system was moving off, and bone-chilling cold was right behind it. From the park, many miles across the lava fields, you could see Big Southern Butte with its own cloud/fog cap. Glad I had a telephoto and tripod for this one.
