Big Island Lava Adventure

All fresh and ready to go!

Seven mile hike round trip over broken glass?  No problem!

We left at 5:00pm with cloud cover.  It was still plenty hot!

Our goal in the distance is where the lava is entering the ocean.

An hour later and it does not look much closer.

We have arrived and so has the rain!  Buckets and buckets of it!

We are cooled down from our 2 hour hike but soaking wet.  The lava skins over almost immediately in the deluge.

Lava ball on a stick anyone?

It was work to keep our holes open.

Very cool experience.
