The one about volcanoes & observatories
Lava flows meeting the ocean.
Rob was reeeeeeely excited to see Kilauea and the observatories on Mauna Kea. I was more excited to go shopping and enjoy not cooking dinner every night. hee hee
I was amazed at how much black lava was everywhere on the island. Pretty neat stuff, after it's cooled. :)
It rained the whole day we first visited Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. I mean, it really rained! So disappointing!!! We did make a quick trip back our last day there and the weather cooperated enough so that we could see the sights.
We sat in the car for over an hour hoping the storm would break. It didn't. This is the view out the windshield. No visibility and raining and blowing hard. Very cold. It felt like we were in a blizzard. Back down at the base of Mauna Kea, it was sunny and warm. Go figure.
