Pretty cool, huh?

Robin and I took a tour of HVNP, first stopping at Jagger Museum to check out Halema'uma'u Crater.  The wind looks like
it's coming from the southwest...  Then we went around to the other side and look at it from there...
Heading down Chain of Craters Road
we came across a tour bus and people
getting their first experience of the lava
Further down the road, almost to the hairpin, we get a view of the ocean entry
And then at the bottom of the road we
can look down the coast and see the
entry from there...
Haven't been hiking much so I decided to take a shot at the Apua Point hike again because it's fairly flat.  After 2.5 miles, I
decided to turn around and head back.  I just wasn't up to doing the complete 12 mile round trip.  See
photopage209 for
the complete hike on 2/13/12.

First a quick stop at Kilauea Iki just
'cause.  Mauna Loa is clear as a bell in
the background with Halema'uma'u
steaming away in the mid-distance.
