Lava Time

4 posts in this topic

Some pics of some lava formations we saw while visiting Hawaii this past July. Pretty crazy to think that this solid rock was once a goopy liquid or even flowing like water. It's also pretty crazy that vegetation is even growing there. A lot of cool rocks and flows to look at it if you are interested in that stuff...I'd have a lot more pics but my wife doesn't find it as interesting as me:-)

A heave in the flow, that's Kilauea in the background.

View looking across the floor of the Kilauea Iki Crater, an absolutely amazing 4 mile hike. (people on right side for scale)

Sweet work. That fourth image looks like tufts of hair growing on the wrinkled skin of a black elephant.
