Kilauea Volcano

On Wednesday, we hit the road for the other side of the island to see the Kilauea volcano. We rented a little cottage near volcano village and had the best Thai food I have ever eaten for dinner… from a food truck. If you are ever in Hawaii, be sure to find Tuk Tuk.

We were all a bit confused when we first saw the volcano. It looked more like a crater than a volcano. I reminded the kids that Hawaii was formed from volcanoes and what Kilauea looked like in the 1980s… you know, the cone shaped volcanoes.

This is what Kilauea looks like in 2017 during the day.

Check out the steam vents. They are HOT…. ask Samantha.

And here is the volcano at sunset. I took a series of pics as it got darker. Just beautiful.
