Geo 365: May 22, Day 142: Surveying the Flow

Dana overlooking the lower part of the lava gutter, where it empties out onto a plain of aa-aa. The lava flowed a couple miles, reaching the Deschutes River, where it created a temporary dam. Where that dam was ultimately breached and eroded down, the stretch of whitewater that remains today is called Benham Falls. It's a spot I haven't visited... yet.
