Sunday was our day to finally get out and take a drive, we have not been out much this winter and i have to say i was feeling the caved in feeling of being housebound, do you ever feel that way?
Well anyway it was also Super Bowl and since we are not into football it was a good time to head out and enjoy some driving time and scenery time.
So we headed out to China Hat Rd, which is forest land and also had many side roads to explore along with some campgrounds. Also very popular for off road vehicles .
There is also a few caves out that way, which really arn't marked that well. But we did find a couple. Have to say i am not brave enough to go into them.Specially since it is hard to get too.Besides i don't like dark areas.
No signs to let ya know there are caves here but they have it all blocked off so that you can't drive your rigs on the path. So we started walking the trail and our first find was this one, a big hole in the ground as you can see if you enlarge the photos nothing but rocks in this part of the country, LAVA all around us.
Nevada and Princess walking on the trail, here is the hole that will lead you to the cave if you want to explore.
And here is the entrance to the cave.
As you can see the rim of the hole and all that rock.I will continue this drive on my next post so come back and check out the rest of the trip

There are picnic tables, fire grills, and vault toilets, but no piped water. The campground is open from May to late October, weather permitting. No reservations are accepted and there is no fee. To reach it, drive east on USFS Rd 22 for 30 miles, then north on USFS Rd 18 for six miles.
