08:25 pm - Awesome Birthday!
I'm in Hawaii – I'm currently in Honolulu, because it's easier for my parents to fly home from there, but yesterday, on my birthday I was on the island of Hawaii. My parents took Becca and I to Hawaii for my birthday (and because they remain evil, Alice was not invited). We stayed at a lovely Hotel a few miles outside of Hilo on Thursday and Friday night, and then came to Hilo for the tour of the Hawaii Volcano National Park that we went on yesterday. It was spectacular, made even better by having a guide who was a retired park ranger who had worked in the Volcano Park since 1972. We saw lava tubes, amazing volcanic landscapes, and a smoking caldera full of lava. During the day, it was merely full of smoke, but as the sun went down, the glow became visible – I could see the glow of magma, and got a number of pictures. Here's what I think is the best:
Volcano Glow
Hilo was lovely (and IMHO vastly more interesting than Kona, which from what I read is uber-touristy and noted only for hot and dry beaches (which hold no interest for me). Hilo had excellent food, amazingly lush scenery nearby, and was closer to the volcanoes. The only downside is that Becca and I both miss Alice a great deal, but we'll be home in 2 days. In any case, I've always loved fire and the images of volcanoes that I've seen, and the volcano park was incredible.
Current Mood: pleasedpleased
