This installment is from one of my best friends who was gracious enough to let me post this. This is footage from the Kilauea volcano in the Volcano National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii. This movie has sound. It is mostly the wind.

Kilauea has been erupting slowly since 1983. From some Googling, I think she must have been standing in the caldera which is a crater. Most of this volano is under sea level.

I especially like the last few seconds of this video when the cooled lava crust is shown up close. She said that the surface was sharper than glass which made for a treacherous hike. Boiling rock, man. It's serious stuff.

Special thanks for this.
