Like Phoenix from the ashes, wildflowers are rising from the cinders at Craters of The Moon National Monument along U.S. 20 near Arco.
The GUARDIAN took a little drive Sunday and discovered entire hillsides with acres and acres of wildflowers flooding among the cinders. IT looks like a bumper crop of flowers have made it through the winter, thanks to plenty of snow and perhaps some rain. Well worth the $10 entrance fee and three hour drive from Boise.We share a few images including a rare shot of Mrs. GUARDIAN photographing some of the flowers emerging from the barren lava.
