Yesterday was volcano day!
The volcano is about 2 hours away. The trip takes you through a number of different biomes. It’s really interesting to see how different the various parts of the island are.
I’m going to put the rest of the post behind a click here because it’s very image heavy. So go ahead and click Continue Reading below to see all the pretty pictures…

Our first stop inside the volcano national park is a lava tube.
Next stop, the Desolation Trail. I think I’m going to make another post for that though, since we have a lot more images!
