I have this terrible thing where I play with words, and the word “Butte” is one of the most fun–I love saying “Butt” instead! Thus, I visited Lava Ass today! In seriousness, I went to the Lava Land and Lava Butte area of Newberry National Volcanic Monument this afternoon. I went for a short walk around the lava flow in the area, and took the shuttle to the top of Lava Butte, where I took a short hike around the crater. It is wonderful, and my joking does not do it justice. Check the pictures!
