ECF: Volcano meets ocean

This is the view we had looking toward the lava flow when we tried to hike there. In real life, we saw a faint layer of white at the horizon, which was the plume of steam.

I just found out that a week after we left, Kilauea started getting a bit more active with earthquakes and the like. In fact, a huge lava shelf collapsed while we were there and we didn't know it.

Take a look here (the first photo at the moment looks uncannily like mine, doesn't it?)
