I was sitting in Boise ID talking to my cousin on the phone, expressing how I wasn’t sure what to do on this leg of the journey. “What should I go see?” I asked him intently and he answered talking about how amazing the mountains were supposed to be. But I had just been up in Olympic National Park and Glacier before that. I couldn’t see how any mountains Idaho had to offer would be any better, or really even come close. As I got closer to Twin Falls, things started to change. The world started to turn from green to gold as canyons started to open up. This weird intermediary terrain was something new to me and I had to explore it. I hopped online to find the “most unique” place to explore, and was on my way to Craters of the Moon.
