Big Island, Hawai'i

The sunrise that ensued (after hiking out in the dark early morning - see previous post), filled me with such awe. I don't often need to ask myself, is this real life? but I'm sure I did a couple of times as lava flowed around my feet and the clouds lit up over the horizon.

I'm a big fan of hiking into places in the dark. When the light eventually illuminates the surrounding area, its the closet thing to teleportation. Everything is revealed all at once in one grand spectacle. I guess a similar experience would be being blindfolded and kidnapped, but that would just be dramatic and scary.

This lava pool is kind of scary too though, because I could have stepped in it and melted like the wicked witch. For those of you not into mortal adventures, enjoy this pleasant looking scene from the lava fields of Kalapana, Hawai'i.
