Volcanic fun

This is the view from the top of a cindercone looking toward Mt. Bachelor. It was so windy up there! But we had a blast walking around it. Next we went to the Obsidian flow fields. The trail went through snow a few times and I found out first hand that not all snow is packed down well, some just covers lightly over an empty spot. I have a wonderful bruise/scrapped leg about the size of a baseball. The hike was breathtaking though!!
The rocks in the foreground are pumice, brown and black obsidian. We also visited a couple lakes at around 6400 ft above sea level. One had a waterfall that we hiked to see.
