Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii - August 28, 2006

At the roped-off area protecting the unstable lava bench, after our 3+ miles of hiking, mostly across the rough lava terrain.


There's the rope. We can't get much closer. [Closer]

[Closer]

Yes, it's dangerous. [1744x1308]

Found a great vantage point. [3488x2616]

Look carefully -- it's a stream of red lava dumping into the ocean! [Closer]

A bit better view of this. [3488x2616]

[1744x1308]

As it gets darker, it's easier to see the lava. [3488x2616]

[1744x1308]

[Closer]

Pretty amazing. [3488x2616]

[1744x1308]

Look back toward the sunset. [1744x1308]

Moving a little further along, the view is not quite as good at this point. [Closer]

[1744x1308]

But once in a while, we get a great look. [3488x2616]

[1744x1308]

[1744x1308]

Looking back at the hill. [Closer]

Up on this ridge, we can see the glow of the lava coming down the hill, too. [1744x1308]
