Lava Beds National Monument, California

Top Pic: Entrance to Golden Dome cave. Some of the caves (lava tubes) have steps at the entrance, but most don't.

This place has been on our bucket list for some time & we’re glad that we finally arrived. I think I see some lava tube/cave exploring on the horizon.

Indian Well - National Monument Campground, near Tulelake CA: Site #A8 (40 RV sites total) - This site has: • water nearby. Campground Notes: flush toilets • vault toilets (in group site) • trails from campground • trails nearby • 4,595’ elevation. May 16th - 20.

Pros:
• Lots of good caves to explore.
• Very nice & well maintained campground.
• All sites non-reservable.
Cons:
• No dump station.
• Most sites are too short for our coach (28ft, 9in).

Overall Experience: Smile

Well, we made it to our twelfth & final planned stop on this trip, but we just may squeeze one more in before we’re home again.

Caves were on the books for today. We explored three: Golden Dome, Sunshine, and Lower & Upper Sentinel (enter one & exit the other).

While we were at Petroglyph Point, we caught a glimpse of Mt. Shasta. We were surprised that it was relatively close.

Mooch is finally done snoozing. Who is watching who?

Lava Beds was a real gem. Searching for that pot of gold.
