Day 7: From Lava Beds to McArthur-Burney State Park

Friday, September 10, 2010: We spent the first half of the day exploring more of the hundreds of caves at Lava Beds. Here's an example of the lavacicles in the caves (we learned that "lavacicles" is the correct term -- they're different than stalagtites):

Midday, we bid farewell to Lava Beds and headed southeast. We stopped at McArthur-Burney falls and hiked the falls loop trail. It's a super-nice state park with a river, lake, amazing falls, and a campground, so we decided to stay for the night ($22/night camping fee plus an $8 entrance fee).
