At the south end of the island.

These were all taken at Hawaii Volcano National Park.

Kilauea Iki, or "Little Kilauea". It's about a mile across.

In a lava tube.

One of the many "small" craters in the Park. This is about a quarter of a mile across.

The view from Chain Of Craters Road, looking out over old lava flows. These lava flows extend as far as you can see, for dozens of miles, up and down the coast.

The plume of steam in the distance is the result of red-hot lava pouring into the ocean.

Road closed due to recent lava flow!

This is about as close as we got to the lava flow. It would have been another couple of miles, walking over rough lava rocks like these, to get next to it....

On a submarine ride off the coast of Kailua.

Driving up the North Kohala coast.

Polulu Lookout, on the very north end of the island.

Keokea Beach, on the north coast.
