Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa's Northern Neighbour

Hawai’i is just about my favourite place on the planet, hard to explain, but it’s quite wonderful. The Americans have done a fairly good job looking after it for the planet in recent years.

#VOLCANO: from the archives, 2010. Volcanoes don’t always look like Bond villain lairs or mountains with a hole in the middle. The magma and lava is literally earth-building material and you may find yourself in what passes for ordinary wilderness except that the steam and smoke need to get out somewhere. #hawaii #fromthearchives #steam #lava
