Kilauea Caldera

Well, we dealt with the Tsunami warning like any other sane person would do, we drove down to Hilo Bay to check it out.  We did not go to the bay as we did not want to get in the way of emergency crews and the like.  We perched ourselves on a nice hill that has a view of the bay.  Fortunately the Tsunami was very mild with no major (or really any minor) damage.  What better to do after that than head on up to Kilauea Caldera and check out the lava level?

The wind was blowing very hard at the observation deck overlooking the caldera at Volcanoes National Park.  Made for some difficult shooting.  I think we came away with some wild shots just the same.

A little closer.
