Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
I am blessed to live so close to this beautiful place. Sometimes it is necessary to step back and take in the wider view in order to appreciate the magnificence of Halemaumau. Halemaumau is a pit crater inside the summit caldera of Kilauea. On April 24th 2015 lava rose up in the vent and on April 29th began to spill over the rim of the outlook crater. It is a spectacular sight; words are inadequate in describing it.
