Today was a powerful day. I visited the Lava Bed National monument and honestly didn’t expect much. I thought it’d be some rocks and that’s about it.
I will return here, I have never felt a place so alive with energy and emotion.
To witness the miles of volcanic rock is truly awe inspiring. Taking in the great powers of destruction our earth is capable of, and yet through this power these grand and beautiful pieces of nature were formed
This land was sacred to the Modoc people, it was a place of great spiritual importance to them. It was also the place the last of their warriors including Chief Kintpuash died fighting the Army to defend their lands. You can feel this place mourn for the loss of the people that worshipped and held this place sacred.
I truly encourage everyone to go and visit this place.
