T and I made our way back to the Big Island a few weeks ago. We’ve been once before in 2012 (check it out HERE).
Friday morning, we met our lava guide in a parking lot 35 minutes from our hotel. T and I sat under a lychee tree and yes, I ate fallen lychee while we waited.
Our guide drove us to private property and we started our 3 mile hike through the jungle and knee high mud.
After 3 hours of hiking, we made it the lava field!
Our guide brought us hot dogs, hawaiian rolls, and marshmallows to cook over the lava!
Trevor said to put on my jacket, but I refused.
It’s crazy that ferns can grow on a million year old lava rock.
So many different colors. It was so beautiful.
