More from Day 1 on the Big Island

Us, with the steaming volcano Kilauea.

We didn't get to see active lava, but we did see this hardened lava "flowing" down the mountain.

This is "Pele's Hair", material put out by the volcano.

Our guide took us into a lava tube.

On the way out of the tube, he posed us for this picture...sun at our faces, cave behind.

Lava trees. Lava coats a living tree, and this is the result.

We ended our first day with handmade truffles from a Volcano Village shop, and a wine tasting at the town's winery.
