The barren landscape of Volcano National Park
My Magnum P.I. helicopter
Used Paradise Helicopters out of Hilo for about $160
I believe this lava flow is the best seen in a while, as it was mentioned in the Monday
A view of Hilo
No that's not a fanny pack, it's a lifejacket they make you wear. In hindsight maybe I should
have snagged it for surfing...
Volcano facts and updates
Entrance to the
Thurston Lava Tube
On my way to the flow, by car and foot this time
Hike out to flow was 3 miles each way, so cut it off
Stayed at the Kilaeua Military Camp. One of only two places actually within the
park, and would have been especially good value for a family- you basically get a multi room cabin.
Ended up doing the buffet at the camp. Good comfort foods such as: mac'n'cheese, cream of chicken soup,
baked chicken, baked potatoes, mashed potatoes w gravy, rice, salad, cake.
