As you know I have always been very interested in volcanoes. It was quite breathtaking to actually gaze into the Kilauea Caldera and down into the Halema'uma'u Crater. In the above picture you can see the large caldera (looks like a giant bauxite pit) with the crater at the bottom. That's the most recent active area of Kilauea. Take a look at the latest webcam looking into Halema'uma'u and compare it to my photo from June of 2006. There are several volcano observatories in this country and the latest conditions on all our our active volcanoes can be found at this link.
Oh ... I forgot to mention that it was up around 90 again today after a low this morning at my house of 68.
