“Kilauea is one of the world’s most active volcanoes. It is a shield-type volcano that makes up the southeastern side of the Big Island of Hawaii. The volcano rises 4,190 feet (1,227 meters) above sea level and is about 14 percent of the land area of the Big Island. The summit caldera contains a lava lake known as Halema`uma`u that is said to be the home of the Hawaiian volcano goddess, Pele.” - Mary Bagley, Live Science Contributor | Seeing the raw forces of the earth in this amazing Hawaiian volcano was one of the highlights of our trip! Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park hosts surreal and awe-inspiring landscapes that are definitely a must-see! #explore

Like getting back to work... but exciting things are in the near future! #staytuned
