From the images I've uncovered, it's clear that my grandmother Hilda and her sister Winifred were avid hikers. When I stumbled upon this photo, of course I had to look up something as cool sounding as Hell's Half Acre! It's now called the Lava Trail System.
According to the Bureau of Land Management,
"The Snake River used to flow across the northern portion of the Snake River Plain but now flows along the southern margin of the Plain. The river was pushed there by successive lava flows. Sixty six thousand acres are within a Wilderness Study Area. The northwest end of the lava flow has been designated as a National Natural Landmark by the US Park Service."
I wonder if the sign is still there?
Happy Trails to You.
