We decided to utilize our full vaccination by taking our first trip outside of California in over 15 months! The remote lava-filled destinations would keep Z safe and we'd still have a great time exploring. We settled on renting a townhouse on the outskirts of Klamath Falls and using the house as a basecamp to visit Lava Beds, Crater Lake and the Sprague River Valley. Z's quote for the trip came after entering the lava tubes for the first time: "This is the best thing I've ever done in MY LIFE!" So I think a good, safe and socially distant time was had by all. And please check-out the Hi-Res photospheres I made at the end of this post. Zooooooom in!
