Lava Flows, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
See molten lava! What I've wanted to see was red hot liquid lava. I know it's dangerous but that's really part of the attraction. To see it coming alive, that in itself is exhilarating! I made myself a promise, I'll be back again :-)
While I stood on the lava flow I couldn't help but think that this must have been what the earth looked like at the beginning of time.
Look before you walk! Some of these rocks are still piping hot! Feels like we were in an oven at some areas.
The earth violent nature is fully imprinted here. We are living in a living thing!!! Do you realise that??? I often forget!
Now, don't you agree this is just something out of this world? Really, it's actually of this world. Sometimes, we don't even know what we are sitting on ;-)
I think this type of lava is what the Hawaiians called AA (ah-ah) - a slow-moving lava which has hardened into rough chunks & boulders.
Watch out for molten rocks everywhere. It's a cool place but dangerous to venture on your own too. An unforgettable experience!
