Thanksgiving on the Big Island VII: Volcano

We went to the Volcano National Park after our boat ride.
Part of the road was closed off due to poor air quality.
But we checked out the big steam hole.
A huge crater with smoke coming out.
And a giant lava tube tunnel. We didn't stay in here too long because it was really drippy (note the drops on my shoulder) and we had just gotten dry from the boat trip.

And if you drop an atomic bomb into the hole, you can reset everything, so that the plane crash never happened, right?

Jorge, I travelled from the UK to the exact same place in October. It is awsome in Volcano National Park. A pity you can't get closer to the massive crater at the moment though. For a good lava tube that's totally untouched you should follow the road to Hana. There is one there that is pitch black that you need to use torches to navigate. Apparantly it's miles long.

That is awesome. It looks like you guys had an adventure. We went to the Lava Tubes by Mt St Helen's this summer. They are called Ape Caves, they have a really hard trail and an easy trail (which is still a mile long). We took the easy one, I'm scared of closed tiny spaces. Here's the link to the pictures, its on facebook. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=38811273&l=0631d22865&id=17814812
