I visited Volcanoes National Park many times before. Never made it out to the Kilauea Iki Trail. I’m glad I did.

Approach

When you approach the trailhead, you see the vast landscape of a crater that has been dormant since 1959. Still venting. Just like many old men. Dormant but still venting.

Approach1

It’s a 1.2 mile hike down to the bottom of the crater. Fairly easy walk.

Moon

Once you’re at the bottom, you encounter a surreal world of silence, a desert of emotions and colors.

Life

Life always makes it to the surface. Somehow. Some way. Life is hard to defeat.

There’s no way you can defeat that life. It’s not even an option.

Took pictures of taking pictures of each other.

And tried to remember how precious life is.
