Xcorps ROAD TOUR OREGON LAVA CAVES – The coast to coast USA road trip continues into the state of Oregon with XCTV show host Jason Lazo rolling down Highway 97 south of Bend hitting the brakes at a place called the Newberry National Volcanic Monument to eXplore the Lava River Cave.
This unique natural cave is a 5,211-foot long continuous lava tube not far from the Lava Cast Forest the longest in Oregon and a place worth checking out. This volcanic area is now part of the Newberry National Volcanic Monument, managed by the US Forest Service.
Even though it’s a hot mid August central Oregon day Jason puts on an extra shirt because its unexpectedly cold in the caves 42F – a place where molten lava rivers flowed 80,000 years ago!
Music sound track from the So Cal based RIVE promoted band The Almighty Grind with their songs Sun God. See It all with a spooky mood created as Jason drops into blackness and the XCAMS go night vision to follow his dark decent!
Great underground and eerie video footage along the way including smooth Lava Tube sidewalls and crystal formations showing the direction of the flow that moved along this path like a river 80,000 years ago!
It gets cold fast as a persons breath can be seen and sound goes from echoes to dead flat because the tube narrows along its one mile path and the clay dirt floor absorbs any sound!
Check out the scene at the end where the walls of the Lava Tube close in tight and Jason hears his own heart beat! Not the place for the claustrophobically ( a LONG word) inclined!
This video report closes out with more lunar landscape scenes topside with another cool track from The Almighty Grind and Jason hitting the road for more interesting and remote places all part of a massive coast to coast cruise stretching from Boston to San Diego called The Xcorps Road Tour!
Next stop Crater Lake the deepest in North America – Stay Tuned!
