Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve is a U.S. National Monument and national preserve in the Snake River Plain in central Idaho. It is along US 20 (concurrent with US 93 and US 26), between the small towns of Arco and Carey, at an average elevation of 5,900 feet (1,800 m) above sea level. The protected area's features are volcanic and represent one of the best-preserved flood basalt areas in the continental United States.
The Monument was established on May 2, 1924. In November 2000, a presidential proclamation by President Clinton greatly expanded the Monument area. The National Park Service portions of the expanded Monument were designated as Craters of the Moon National Preserve in August 2002. It lies in parts of BlaineButteLincolnMinidoka, and Power counties. The area is managed cooperatively by the National Park Service and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
The Monument and Preserve encompass three major lava fields and about 400 square miles (1,000 km2) of sagebrush steppe grasslands to cover a total area of 1,117 square miles (2,893 km2). The Monument alone covers 53,571 acres (21,679 ha). All three lava fields lie along the Great Rift of Idaho, with some of the best examples of open rift cracks in the world, including the deepest known on Earth at 800 feet (240 m). There are excellent examples of almost every variety of basaltic lava, as well as tree molds (cavities left by lava-incinerated trees), lava tubes (a type of cave), and many other volcanic features.
We were on our way to MONTANA (September 2019) when we made a side trip to this beautiful place. We stayed for only like three hours. Ughhh believe me three hours wasn't enough. We thought it was but it wasn't. Hmpp i always said this haha "we will be back soon to explore this place all day".

We were looking for beautiful Christmas lights display and we heard about this place called Indian Creek in Caldwell Idaho,  so we checked it out. Oh my goodness it's so beautiful, you can feel the spirit of Christmas. The lights were superb, thousands or millions of beautiful lights all over. Whoever did it I must say " You did an excellent job". 
The place was packed during our visit but I dont care. I love it in there, if only its near from us, i will be there every night lol.

We went to Montana last September to watch Incubus Concert, and since we were there already we went to Glacier National Park and hiked up to this beautiful lake. Avalanche Lake is so beautiful. It was a 2 miles hike and it took us more than an hour to get there. We are not hikers so we were so slow we get tired so easily lol. The hike was really worth it, it was so cloudy, gloomy and rainy that time. My photos don't do justice on how beautiful it is. Im pretty sure if the weather wasn't like this, pictures will turns out more prettier than the photos i took.

Avalanche Lake is located in Glacier National Park, in the U.S. state of Montana. Avalanche Lake is southwest of Bearhat Mountain and receives meltwater from Sperry Glacier. Avalanche Lake is a 2 miles hike from the trailhead along the Trail of the Cedars. The lake sits at the base of 8694-foot Bearhat Mountain, which rises almost 4800 feet above the lake towards the northeast. The mountain dominating the view towards the south is 7886-foot Little Matterhorn. If you look closely at the cliffs and mountains that surround the lake you'll notice several long waterfalls plunging hundreds of feet as they make their way towards the shore. Many of these waterfalls originate from Sperry Glacier, which rests beyond Little Matterhorn and can't be seen from the lake.

I only have few autumn photos because the snow came so early. I thought we still have time to go for a place where the leaves were changing colors. I was wrong before we knew the snow came. I remember this time of the year last year its beautiful everywhere. The colors and everything but now its lifeless the leaves were gone already. Gone too soon lol. Anyways these are the few photos i took. Its not the best but its beautiful.

Went here because we wants to do stargazing see the moon and some planets thru the the telescope in this park. Sad to say it was so cloudy and had a lil bit of rain when we get there. Nothing is visible in the sky, sometimes it got cleared and the sun came out but only for few minutes and cloudy again. Still we enjoy the place because its beautiful. I know for sure we will go back for some stargazing in the future.
