Big Island, Hawaii

USA | Thursday, 22 December 2005 | Views [317]

As some of you know I've been fighting a cold for almost a week now.  Yesterday, determined not to leave Big Island without seeing anything I forced myself to get up and take a lava hike.  I'm glad I did it.  It turned out to be a great experience.  We walked for miles over fields of volcanic rock until we found the new breakouts.  Here we could see the red lava ouzing out of the ground.  It was pretty cool to walk along lava rocks and see bright red in between the cracks where we were walking.  It was really really hot though.  When I got back to the hostel a shower never felt so good. Being low on gorceries I went out for dinner last night with someone I met from the hike.  I leave for Oahu in 2 hours.  I'll be home in Canada in 3 days which is really hard to believe.  I'm having a hard time getting my head around that.
