If you've never been to the Lave Rock Caves or Lava Tubes as some people call them you should go. It's really pretty cool. At least as far as I've gone. Kev and I went to them last year and only went down into them a 1/4 of the way. We both wanted to be able to see daylight, so when we couldn't anymore we turned around. We took Alicia & Veronica there so they could check them out. They were all ready with my hat that has the built in lights, a splunker and flashlights. I actually went in for a little ways and again turned around. (chicken) The cave starts out that you have to do alot of climbing over big boulders, it's kind of narrow, it's cold and dark. It goes in about 1 1/4 miles. The two of them went all the way in, and describing it when they came out made me wish I had kept going. Once you get into the tube part you really don't climb anymore but it opens up really wide and a lot smoother trail.
