|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"
|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...

|I don't know what this means!
|This is the remains of an ancient
Hawaiian canoe shed.

but they're somewhere between "099"
and "Beach Rd. and Makuu Dr."
