Most of these were taken along the Kïlauea Iki trail that goes through an old lava lake that erupted in 1959. Is it the best hike in the world? In my opinion, it's gotta be up there. At least at 7 AM as the sun rises and the fog still hasn't lifted — how many hikes feel like you're on the surface of another planet? It's not just the one hike, either. You get to walk through lava tubes, feel like you're in Jurassic Park, and even follow the lava to the ocean (amongst other out-of-this-world things). Am I thinking about going back and trying to live on this volcano? Yes, yes, I am.
