Volcanoes National Park

On Day 2 of our Hawaiian sojourn, we visited Volcanoes National Park, where we encountered sun, clouds, mist, rain, fog, wind, and an ever-changing landscape.

View of the main vent of the Kilauea Iki Crater, which erupted in 1959:

From the Kilauea Iki Trail, we had a good view of the active Halema'uma'u Crater:
