We will explore its unique geologic features including lava tubes and caves in Lava Beds National Monument, the enormous obsidian deposit of Glass Mountain caused by the volcano’s last eruption, and the beautiful Medicine Lake caldera, hunting grounds for Bald Eagles and Osprey. We’ll visit lava caves, volcanic vents, ice caves and a unique wall of petroglyphs for insights into these ancient environments and their historical connection to indigenous peoples.
