Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island start erupting again last night. Its most recent previous eruption lasted for decades before ending in 2018. Nobody knows how long this new eruption might last, but it is certainly an interesting development for us geoscience nerds, not to mention nearby residents, and, of course, tourists.
My family and I were fortunate to visit Kilauea twice during its previous eruption, once in 2002 and again in 2004. I promised to post some fun stuff from time to time, so here are a few photos from those two visits. I was shooting with my very first digital camera, a rather primitive Olympus point-and-shoot with a pretty good zoom lens, having just made the transition from a Nikon SLR that shot film.
One thought on “Kilauea Reprise”
I recall melting the soles of my shoes on that newly made land!
