Hawaii, June/July 2012, Day 6

We woke up and decided to drive the circumference of the island.

Along the way, we passed:


Next stop Punalu’u Black Sand Beach Park

After leaving there and arriving at Volcanoes National Park, we could tell by the steam coming out of the ground at various places along the drive that we were about to see something special…

This was as close as we were able to get. TA-DAAAH!

Before leaving the park, we walked through the Thurston Lava Tube. We had to hike down to get to it because it was in the middle of a tropical rain forest. The picture I took inside wasn’t great because it was so dark, but you get the idea.

The hike down and back was a visual feast!

P.S. In case you haven’t noticed, I’m kind of a freak about taking pics of minutia. 🙂  So again, thanks for looking!

What do you think? I'd love to hear from you!
