April 14 - Volcanoes

Joan wanted to visit a volcano, so today we took a trip to the big island and toured Volcano National Park.  We learned a lot about volcanoes and how they are formed.  We took the crater trail hike and stopped at a few overlooks.  We saw steam from several "hot spots" and before the hike was over, we got to see a few that were still glowing.  We walked out onto some dry lava.  It was sharp and hard to walk on.  There weren't really opportunities to sketch though.  I bought a patch at the gift shop to add to my patch collection.
