Here's a stitched-together panorama of
Keanakako'i Crater made from three photos...
I think the "crunchy" lava I walked over is the black stuff coming down left of center
3:51 PM @ *259
End of the road coming up...
3:52 PM @ *260
Keanakako'i Crater on the left...
3:54 PM @ 269
I enhanced this so maybe you can
read this...
3:54 PM @ *271
End of the road...
3:55 PM @ *273
Meanwhile, on the other side of the
road...  Looking at the south end of the
Kilauea Caldera
Zoom.
This is this lava flow just left of center
in the previous photo...
3:58 PM @ *280
Another shot of that lava flow from a
slightly different angle.

That's
Halema'uma'u in the back...

More weird stuff...
4:00 PM before *290
I'm getting up on this splatter ridge...
4:00 PM @ *290
The lava
fountained out of that
crevasse and landed here...
4:00 PM
A little closer look...
4:00 PM
A huge crack opened up here and
spewed hot lava all over the place..
4:01 PM @ *295
Looking up the crack the other way...
4:01 PM @ *295
Think about it...
4:03 PM @ *310
I hope you can see the picture on the
billboard OK...
4:04 PM @ *310
One last look...
4:25 PM @ *234
This road has been closed to traffic
since 3/19/08, over 4 years.  The
grass is starting to encroach and the
road's getting that abandoned look...
3:44 PM @ *241
Coming out of the trees, starting to get
a good look at the Kilauea Caldera
3:46 PM @ *244
All of that to the right of the
Halema'uma'u plume is caldera...
3:46 PM @ *244
3:48 PM @ *250
Guess I'd better slow down...
3:50 PM @ *253

Cool!  There's a viewing platform!
Zoom.  Some interesting formations...
