I wrote about hiking across hard lava to poke a stick into hot lava, and the pictures were groovy, but I had more than I could squeeze in there, so here are the rest that are worthwhile. Those who don’t sympathize with my Hawaii Problem (the urge to force recent-vacation pictures down the world’s throat) will be happy to hear that there are only a couple more instalments after today.
Here are the pictures. I really have nothing to add to what I wrote before. Well, once again: Go see this if you get a chance.
This last picture is blurry and less dramatic, but gives a human-scale feel for the size and shape of a reasonably-typical live lava flow.
