One of our guests turned me on to Leigh Hilbert's blog. He gives you daily reports of the Volcanoes activity on the Big Island of Hawaii. I am sure you find his account facinating and his photography outstanding! You can view his work on display and for sale at the Kalapana Lava flow site. A few vendors are allowed to set up tents near the parking area. I would suggest contacting him on his blog if you are interested in meeting and purchasing his photos to see if he will be available. The last time I went to view the lava the security closed the park at 8:00 pm, but the sign said 10:00?? If the parking lot is filled you may have to come back another day. In my next post, I will give you some tips on planning your days excursion to the east side of the island.

About Me

I love sharing what is happening here on the Big Island, especially the on-going lava flow and changes in the weather and surf conditions. I offer daily reports (less often during non-event times) of these and other Big Island events on this blog ... From my home I have a 360-degree perspective of land, sea & sky - Mauna Loa & Mauna Kea volcanoes and the ocean entry lava plume when it is active. I surf and also drive past a local surfing shoreline on the way out to the active lava flowing zone nearly every day; providing me with first-hand accounts of all these things I share with you here. ----- If you would be interested in seeing my photography of molten lava, surfing and a bunch of other things I point my camera at, visit my photo galleries here:


Born and raised in Seattle, Washington. I moved to the outer west coast of Canada in my twenties and raised a family. I skippered nature tour boats for many years, capturing some wonderful wildlife on film. (Those images are coming here later after I sort and drum-scan them).

I moved to Hawaii in 1998 and have a decent and growing collection of Hawaiian photos.
