The streaks you see are actually pieces of lava flying through the air from explosions of the hot lava contacting the cold
(well... 80+ degrees) ocean water.  They come out as streaks because of the slow shutter speed of the camera in the
dark.  Pretty isn't it?
One last look up the hill before we
leave.  No zoom on the left, full zoom
on the right.
Back at the cars, a no-zoom shot on
the left and a no-zoom shot in the right
from when we started out that day.

Government Beach Road, the "Red Road"
December 14, 2006
Another check back up the hill
And now for something completely different!  Today I took a ride up what is locally called the "Red Road" because it
used to be finished with red (rust-colored) cinder.  It's officially known as Government Beach Road and, as you will see
is not maintained.  It is probably one of the prettiest drives on the island primarily because it isn't maintained.  I don't
think the locals want it maintained either.  Very few people live on it and those are mostly at the ends.  I'm trying a new
thing here with my GPS and showing the locations where I took the pictures.  Let's see how it goes...
