Orca III and Malachi in Hilo at the wharf! this is the industrial area here and we have to be escorted of everytime we want to leave the area....
this is the crater at Mauna Loa observatory. that is lava you see!! very cool
and here we are at the lava tunnel! this is really neat. it is about 200 years old
its amazing that plants will grow in anything! these are all over the lava
lava diggers! Everone wants some , this is the lava flow from 1974, very neat
Maya picking some pretty lava. We got some that is very sparkly
heres where the lava hit the road, thats us in our car! tee hee
Isn't Graeme so strong!!

lava everywhere! Uncle and Nephew on the black
the sea side of the lava see that steam way of in the distance, that is lava pouring into the ocean, we will be going around that at night on Wednesday to see it by boat on our way to the other side of the island - Kona side
Bye Bye Graeme, ! thanks for joining us on part of our journey - enjoy civilization!
