Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look northeastern California’s Lava Beds National Monument.
The monument contains over 700 caves made up of hardened lava, 20 of which can be explored by tourists. The lava comes from the Medicine Lake volcano, located at the top of the image. Also visible in the image are the Glass Flow, the Schonchin Flow, the Callahan Flow, and the Devils Homestead Flow.
This image was captured by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on board the Landsat 8 satellite.
