Photo Friday #3: Kilauea Volcano

Now that we’ve started our round-the-world trip, every Friday we will feature one of our favorite photographs from the previous week of adventures on Don’t Ever Look Back.

Halemaumau Crater

A sulphur dioxide plume rising from the Halemaumau Crater, a pit crater within the much larger Kilauea Caldera in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii.

This photo was taken from the outlook at the Jaggar Museum.

    WOW you are a braver mam than me, spectacular scene. Did you hike up to the summit?

      Nope, our guided tour took us to this awesome lookout point! You can do a few hikes that get closer but most of the roads are closed off because of the volcanic gases so we were quite happy to sit here and watch it.

    Love this view!! Saw it a few days after you guys and stayed until sunset to see “the glow”. So awesome! (tho lava would have been more awesome-er).

    Next time!!

      The glow sure was something special to see! But you’re right, it just doesn’t compare to seeing flowing lava.

    Did you rent a car while you were on the Big Island? I heard that it’s hard to get around without one.

      Nah – we stayed on the Kona side and the cost of renting a car for the day would’ve been around the same price as an organized tour so we did the tour! But you’re right, it’s pretty difficult to get around without a car there.
