Fossil Falls

Continuing our drive down Highway 395, we stopped briefly at a fairly new ghost town. There were lots of old magazines all over the floor, dating back 40 years or so.

Our next stop was Fossil Falls BLM campground.

It was a gorgeous spot in amongst all the old lava.

Fossil Falls is no longer a waterfall, but you can see how it used to be.

Looking "downstream." We tried to find a way to drive down there, but it was all closed off.

Looking across "the river."

The next day, Don took us on a 4-wheel drive trip up and around the big cinder cone there. There is a big quarry on one side.

It was a lot of fun, but the best thing was this group of birds flying overhead.

We went out to the overlook above Little Lake.

The colors down there are just gorgeous!

We're about done with Highway 395, but everyone agreed it was a great trip!
