Saturday Snapshot (February 2, 2012) Volcanoes in Hawaii

This continues the tour on our third cruise day as we visited Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on The Big Island of Hawaii. We did several stops on the Crater Rim Drive. I ended up choosing 10 photos so I will split them into two weeks.

Kīlauea caldera in the distance - note the pathway mid picture.

Zoomed in you can see the people (near top of the picture) who are walking across 
the Kilauea Iki trail to the crater rim!

Then we got to walk through a Lava Tube
which was really fun!

My feet got a little wet in the tunnel. :-)

This is part of the path through the tropical rain forest returning from the tunnel.
I loved walking through this and took many shots of the wild undergrowth!

To be continued next week with pictures of the actual volcanoes.

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.
