We took our grandaughter. She was learning to use a camera. We try to take this drive at least once a year. It's so near Hwy 97, it's easy access.

Here in the Pacific Northwest we often view the power of mother nature, sometimes so much so that we begin to take it for granted. It is difficult to do that when visiting Lava Lands. The raw power of volcanic eruptions on a massive scale bring visions of the end times. It is very humbling to look, view and realize how puny man and his bombs are if for some reason the earth decided to erupt.

This is a fun place to visit. It has a good visitor center, some easy walking trails, and a great observation point from the top of Lava Butte. You will see different types of lava and other interesting evidence of volcanic activity in the area.

The visitor center is small, but very well done and GREAT for children. The hikes through the lava flows are really interesting, and again, a great family trip.
