Kapu moku

I've been on other volcanic islands before and I've always had the general sense of, "Ok, so this place was created by molten rock that came out of that mountain over there." *shrug* But yesterday we went to Volcanoes National Park and saw the lava flows in person. Not fresh lava, as that's flowing too far away to which to hike, but we saw the devastation caused by countless millions of tons of liquid earth. Words fail to describe it and pictures barely capture a fraction of seeing, in every direction as far as the eye can see, the field of devastation.

Also, at sunset, I was the most southern man in the United States. Or southernmost, whichever. But it was at sunset, so that makes it official, in the recordbooks.
