Today after breakfast, we headed out of Twin Falls towards Shoshone and the Ice Cave nearby.

The ice cave was 1000 feet underground and at the deepest, the ice was 200 feet deep. There was some water on the top, which was just from some recent rains.

The temperature in the ice cave was 3 degrees, so was a little bit chilly. We were in there for about 20 minutes and that was enough. We were both glad to get out into the warmth.

We then headed further north to the Craters of the Moon National Monument. It took us about an hour to get to the main park, but most of the way, there was lava craters everywhere.

What got me, was how black it all was. The bitumen road, the edges of the road and all the lava, was black. There was a little bit of green thrown in and also some wild flowers, but mostly everything was black.

I did quite a bit of driving today, as Darryl was still not well. He did drive through the Craters of the Moon, but let me drive back to Twin Falls.

We stopped at the town of Shoshone, and had a look through a couple of antique shops there. We also had a bite to eat and then headed back to do some washing.

Tomorrow we head to Reno.
