This is the seismographic plot of the big
earthquake we had on October 15.  As you
might expect, Kilauea is littered with
seismographic sensors.

My Sister Leane's Visit
Thursday, October 19, 2006
Day 1, Airport to Hot Pond
Robin and I met Leane at the Hilo Airport at 1:00 on Thursday.  Leane was pretty burnt out, having flown from China to
Honolulu, then spending 3 hours at Honolulu Airport waiting for her flight to Hilo.  There was really only one thing to do
with her and that was to take her to the
Hot Pond to soak.  We soaked for a couple of hours then brought her home
where she could get a shower and a change of clothes.  Then we went out to eat, brought her home, and put her to bed.

Day 2, Kilauea, Hookena Beach, Ray's House
April 9; page 30, July 8) for breakfast.  The crater was completely fogged in and you couldn't see a thing but we enjoyed
our buffet breakfast and then took
Crater Rim Drive around to the Jagger Museum.  While we were there, the fog
blew away and we had an excellent view of
Halema'uma'u Crater.  We drove around to the viewing point, then
proceeded on to the
Kilauea Iki Crater.  After that, we headed over to the Ho'okena Beach Park where Ray and
Ellen and family and mutual friends were having a barbecue.

This is a look at where I hiked on October 9 (pages 40-41).  On the left is the ridge of rocks where I turned from the
Byron Ledge Trail to the Halema'uma'u Trail.  You can also see Volcano House on the ridge.  I came down the ridge
in the right photograph, just to the left of the landslide area and right of the cinder cone.
