EXPLORING HAWAI’I VOLCANOES

We headed out in the morning towards the volcanoes. It was a pretty scenic 2 hours or so drive.

We stopped at Punalu’u Bake Shop that sold some “sweet bread” and it was delicious. We got taro, mango, and guava. Screen Shot 2015-11-01 at 5.23.52 PMWe then continued on until we stopped at Volcano Garden Arts to have lunch, but unfortunately the cafe was closed that day. IMG_0105IMG_0101

Afterwards, we decided to go to Punalu’u Black Sand Beach nearby. That beach had some crazy waves! It was fun to walk around. But I didn’t get to see any turtles 🙁IMG_0081 IMG_0083 IMG_0084 IMG_0088 IMG_0093 IMG_0094 IMG_0097 Photo 2015-10-26, 4 41 16 PM Photo 2015-10-26, 4 41 23 PM Photo 2015-10-26, 4 41 47 PM Photo 2015-10-26, 4 41 52 PM Photo 2015-10-26, 4 41 55 PM Photo 2015-10-26, 4 42 02 PM Photo 2015-10-26, 4 45 42 PM

After that we proceeded towards our final destination: VOLCANO (during the day). I must add the view was pretty spectacular as well!IMG_0134 IMG_0133 IMG_0131 IMG_0129 IMG_0125 IMG_0123 IMG_0121 IMG_0120 IMG_0116 IMG_0112 IMG_0111

After checking out the museum they also had there, we went and hiked through a rainforest towards a lava tube.

A few hours later, we returned to see the magma glow emanating from the volcano:

As well as went back to the steam vents and saw some pretty cool “creepy” mist emanating off the cliff.IMG_0223 IMG_0225
