Nothing But A Number

I received this card from two different people in today's mail, and it reminded me of something I read on a parenting message board many years ago..."A three year-old is just a two year-old with experience."

Nancy, I clicked over to your site from your comment on Mighty Girl for the camera bag giveaway. I wanted to let you know that the best way to see the lava flow at Kilauea is to just walk right up to it! The best time to go is in the evening so that, as the sun sets, you can really see the glow of the red-hot lava as it creeps down the mountain side. You'll want to wear hiking boots and dress is layers; Hawai'ian evenings can be quite cool on this arid part of the coast, but you'll warm up significantly as you approach the molten lava. Take a flashlight, drinking water and, of course, a camera!

The other features in the park are very worth visiting, too. While you're there, follow Crater Rim Drive and hike into the caldera, stop by the Visitor Center for lots of volcano information, and spend time on one of the nearby black sand beaches for some epic swimming, sunning, and hippie-viewing. Enjoy; it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

P.S. For information about the volcano and to plan your trip, visit the National Parks web page http://www.nps.gov/pwr/havo/
