We found this little gem, by just driving by. The young man who gave us our tour, really knew he's information and made it a great time. We'll be talking about this to friends. more »
Have passed the Shoshone ice caves many times - always in the winter. Now that we were able to be here in summer, we seized the opportunity. Had a wonderful young tour guide to tell us about the history of the volcano, lava tubes, and ice. Fascinating! Easy climb both ways. Bring a sweatshirt for max enjoyment.
Couldn't give away all the beauty of this place- you have to come check it out for yourself. Although some areas were a bit difficult on the knees...it is possible!!!! Worth the drive & time...many thanks to our young guide he was awesome.
