Saturday Snapshot (February 9, 2013) Hawaii Volcanoes

This continues the tour on our third day as we visited Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on The Big Island of Hawaii. We did several stops on the Crater Rim Drive and then visited the volcano  views.

 The steam vents across the field are sulphurus so you only look from a distance.

This vent is safe to look at and feel the heat!
It was actually windy and cool so the lady in her short dress probably was glad for the heat.

The final stop was the Jaggar Museum with 
lots of informative displays inside and great vista views.

This is a view (Kīlauea caldera) from the back deck of the museum.

And a final view of Mauna Loa in the distance.
Both Kīlauea and Mauna Loa are active volcanoes.

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.


  1. OMG the big island is my favourite place in Hawaii.
    We actually got stuck overnight when a tree fell.
    Read about it here:

  2. Your Hawai'i photos the past few weeks have brought back so many happy memories for me. My husband and I honeymooned there nearly 3 years ago - we took a helicopter flight over the volcano :-)

  3. What an awesome trip!!! Thanks for sharing these photos!!

  4. I've never been to Hawaii, so thanks for sharing your photos. New Zealand has many volcanoes, we learned when daughter and son-in-law lived there.

  5. Those are amazing shots! I've never been to Hawaii or seen a live volcano - would be so cool.

  6. Love your pictures of the volcanoes views. Looks like you and your husband had fun. Thanks for sharing your pictures with us!

  7. I think it would be great to see an active volcano or two. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I find volcanoes so fascinating ... I have always wanted to go to Italy and see the ruins at Pompeii and tour as close to Vesuvius as possible ...

  9. Nice shots -- I'm not sure I'd want to live so close to an active volcano, but it's a beautiful place.

  11. Have been to Hawaii but didn't visit the volcanoes....guess I'll have to plan a trip back♫ Here's my SS:

  12. I'd love to visit there again - those vents were fun to see in person. I was surprised that Mauna Loa had such a gradual slope.
