The Blue Moon setting this morning: it's the second full moon this
month, so it's a blue moon.
We shared a dragon fruit for breakfast, along with our cereal. Then we drove to the volcano.
From afar we could see the fumes rising from the vent in the crater.
Lunch at a picnic table near the visitor center of the National Park.

Miriam and Alice entering the famous Thurston Lava Tube.

In the lava tube.

Steam rising from a vent in the ground. 
Sulfur deposited on a rock near a vent.
Vents and sulfur deposits.
In the forests around the volcano, fascinating ferns and other flowers.

Hawaii is my favorite and your photos are great! The flowers, volcano, ocean, all amazing. We were there during the 9/11 attacks. Honolulu was like a ghost town the next day or two. It's a fabulous place!!!

What does dragon fruit taste like? It's gorgeous! Sweet? Tart? Delicious or not-so-much? Looks like a fun day at the volcano, too!
