Arco is the home of the first nuclear reactor in the world but we were there on a weekend and couldn’t do the tour. We headed for the Craters of the Moon National Monument. Talk about a forbidding landscape! Caused by the same subterranean hot spot that caused the Yellowstone caldera, Craters is the result of volcanic activity with lava flows just 2000 years ago.  We hiked to the top of Inferno Cone and explored the mouth of one of the lava tube caves.  We camped at a little campground on the Snake River near Huntington, Oregon.
