In the 1920s, taxidermist Robert “Two-Gun Bob” Limbert explored and mapped out Craters. He wrote about the unique landscapes here in Southern Idaho, in hopes more people would come to see them!
Read Limbert’s description of a unique lava feature he found, and draw a picture of what you think it looks like! When you’re done, open up the photo below to compare!!
“The remarkable Blue Dragon Flow is well-named. Its surface is netted and veined with small cracks like scales of a prehistoric monster. Ropy twists of blue and gray lava have spread out in branches resembling the claws and legs of a dragon. This fantastic region of folds 30 feet wide, of whirlpools, gigantic snakes, and frozen waves extends for 11 miles.”
