Along highway 20 is Craters of the Moon national park, a place created as a result of volcanic eruptions that occurred 15,000 years ago with the most recent activity about 2000 years ago. I had never heard of this place, and it was eye-opening to find out about its existence.
These trees had all these branches called "witches brooms" that occur on the tree as a result of a parasite. So apocalyptic and creepy.
I didn't take any pictures in Boise. We got in late, and found a great happy hour. We stayed in a historic hotel downtown that was over 100 years old. Damn me for not capturing it, but Boise is a really cool city, and it's super inexpensive! Total traveling plus.
