Valley of Fires

This was a last minute decision stop. I spotted it on the web and it looked cool. It turned out to be the most wonderful and interesting place. Its basically a huge lava field. Not an eruption but simply a huge fault in the desert that just opened up and pushed lava out of the ground. It is between 2 to 5 miles wide and 44 miles long. We stayed on the only piece of land high enough in the area that did not get engulfed by the lava.
