Explore Craters Of The Moon National Monument In Idaho Like Never Before On This Virtual Tour
Due to the current situation with COVID-19, national parks across the country have opted to close up until further notice. Even our own Craters of the Moon National Monument has restricted certain features of the park, including the visitor center and campground. However, that doesn’t mean you have to go without the bizarre wonders of this incredible park. The park itself is still allowing visitors, but if you’d rather stay at home you can always experience a virtual adventure of Craters of the Moon with their nifty mobile app. This virtual tour allows you to access the park’s most stunning features anytime and anywhere.
A vast landscape filled with lava flows, cinder cones, and sagebrush, Craters of the Moon National Monument is one of the most unique landscapes in Idaho. It's definitely worth seeing for yourself when you can, but you can also experience it virtually by utilizing their mobile app.
The app can be found in your mobile phone's App Store as "Craters Rocks! Geology of Craters of the Moon." The app acts as a great companion during your physical visit to the park, but it also offers a standalone experience for delving deeper into the geology of this fantastic landscape
Specifically, the app contains trail maps, photos, and descriptions of some of Craters of the Moon's most important features. If anything, it's a great way to impress your friends and family with newfound knowledge of this bizarre and weirdly wonderful park.
During your virtual journey through Craters of the Moon, you'll learn all about the cinder cones, craters, caves, and other volcanic features that make this landscape look the way it does. Of course, nothing beats seeing this place in person, but this virtual experience is definitely the next best thing.
Perusing the app is also bound to inspire you to visit this fascinating location the minute you can. Considering Craters of the Moon's incredible landscape was formed via volcanic eruptions up to 15,000 years ago, it's the type of destination you won't soon forget visiting.
The park is still open to visitors at this time, but be aware that the visitor center, loop drive, and campground are all closed until further notice. There is currently no charge to enter the park, and the Loop Road remains open for pedestrians and bicycles.
