We drove through Mountain Home and found the only Thai food truck in this little town.  The lady there said that she had been there since 1984 and had not gone anywhere since.  The food was the best Thai that we’ve ever had… in Idaho.  As we drove in to Craters of the Moon, it looked like a giant had just plowed through an asphalt field. It’s a black, rough and brutal place- a result of volcanoes 2,000 to 15,000 years ago.  We walked all around lava tubes, craters, caves…  NASA is actually using Craters of the Moon as a testing ground for their rovers for future manned missions to Mars because the ground here looks closest to the surface of Mars.
