Big Obsidian Flow in Newberry National Volcanic Monument

If you’ve been following us for any length of time, you know we’re big fans of Newberry National Volcanic Monument.  One of the most impressive spots in the monument is the Big Obsidian Flow.  This amazing landscape is actually the youngest lava flow in the entire state of Oregon.
