Time for a little wedding-review break! 'How about a 9 day trip to Hawai'i Island, with a detour to O'ahu?
At night, we headed to the Jaggar Museum to see the Kilauea volcano. The lava lake isn't usually visible, but we were so lucky. With Jim's binoculars, you could actually see the splashes of lava. To see a lava flow up close you can head through the park to Holei Sea Arch and then hike 5 miles on a gravel road. Or you can come from the other direction (Kalapana) and rent mountain bikes from the local entrepreneurs. We didn't have time to do it, but it would've been super cool to see a lava flow up close.
REAL LAVA, GUYS.
