Volcano

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
On the 12th (Sat), admire the sheer force of Rainbow Falls, take in the dramatic natural features at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), then hike along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, and finally examine the collection at Jagger Museum. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour.
