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.

OMG the big island is my favourite place in Hawaii.ReplyDelete
We actually got stuck overnight when a tree fell.

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 :-)ReplyDelete
What an awesome trip!!! Thanks for sharing these photos!!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Those are amazing shots! I've never been to Hawaii or seen a live volcano - would be so cool.ReplyDelete
Love your pictures of the volcanoes views. Looks like you and your husband had fun. Thanks for sharing your pictures with us!ReplyDelete
I think it would be great to see an active volcano or two. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
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 ...ReplyDelete
Nice shots -- I'm not sure I'd want to live so close to an active volcano, but it's a beautiful place.ReplyDelete
Very nice photos..thanks.ReplyDelete
I have never been to Hawaii. THANKS.
My Saturday Snapshot

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.ReplyDelete
