Plant Life in Craters of the Moon

I’m just going to show pictures, not try to identify each plant at this point.

The lava fields are a stark and, sometimes, seemingly barren landscape.  However, there is a wide variety of plant and – even though we didn’t see any of it – animal life in the monument and preserve.
