Geo 365: August 22, Day 234: Breadcrust Bombs and Beyond

With a sturdy four-wheel drive vehicle, you can drive right to the rim of the excavation at Little Nash Crater, which is where this and yesterday's photos were taken. In this one, you can see a nice breadcrust bomb in the foreground, and a front-end loader beside a pile of processed gravel in the distance. This clearly seems to be the spot to look for different morphologies of lava bombs- there are quite a variety, in a range of sizes. I don't know what the work schedule here is, but I'd imagine weekends are mostly down. I'd avoid the area if people are working.
