I should have taken the day off to brew. It's far too nice outside this late in the year to be stuck in the office. 
Thank you BEER!

I can only see two from my house. Hood is about 50 miles away. Adams is about 20. From a hill south of my place you can see Rainier Adams St Helens Hood and Jefferson

Definitely jealous, from someone who grew up in sight of Wy'east (Hood) and Loowit (Helens). Up here in Seattle we only get Tacoma (Rainier), and Kulshan (Baker) if you've got a good north view. But we also get the North Cascades and Olympics on clear days, so it comes out even.

Punatic, you ever been out to Central Oregon? The obsidian flow at Newberry Crater is a sight.

On the drive from Bend to the coast there's a pretty spectacular lava field.  Is that it?

That's definitely not the Newberry Crater flow; you have to take a road east off highway 97 to get there. Well worth the trip. I see a couple different lava fields on the map west of Bend, so you'll have to be more specific about which highway you're referring to.

Decided to go for it. Blonde is in the fermentor, IPA is starting boil, ABA mash water is heating. I'll be beat but the freezmentor will be full. I'm not looking forward to bottling day!

McKenzie Pass is what I remember, after looking at a map.  Highway 20 between Sisters and Cascadia.

There's some lava over there. Black Butte is along that route. Big ole cinder cone.

About 30 minutes of boil time left on my ABA then all done! Three batches in one day. I'll take that as a good day

No, it is more south and a little east of the highway. Huge flow of obsidian, not what we think of lava, this is black glass. On top there are obsidian boulders almost the size of a Smart car.

A ways from there, there was a lava flow with casts of trees, that left round voids down into the lava.

If this works, it is a Works Progress project in the McEnzie Pass lava field.

We went to another basalt rock park somewhere between Bend and Crater Lake that was pretty cool, too.

Edit.  Well that didn't work and I don't feel like diagnosing it right now.
