Volcano National Park, Big Island, Hawaii


Kilauea Caldera, an active shield volcano. Lava is at the bottom, hence the steam


Kilauea Iki, a hardened lava lake crater, which is one of the hikes I took through a rain forest, down into a seeming moonscape


Thurston Lava Tube – sometimes created after rivers of lava flow cool


unexpected sight in the middle of a vast lava plain


Pu’u Loa Petroglyph — the holes next to the impression were created to house the umbilical cords of newborns in order to tie them to their ancestral lands


Rainforest also exists in this incredible national park
