Hiking in Lava Tube Cave - Traveling the Big Island, Hawaii - Day 4-1

       On the day before leaving from the Big Island, it was a very beautiful sunny day. My husband and I decided to take a lot of photos because we were planning on making our traveling photo book. We headed toward Kohala from Kailua-Kona. We saw the desolate black lava landscape while driving on Queen Ka'ahumanu Highway.

          While driving north, we unexpectedly found this huge lava tube which was produced by Hualalai lava flow in 1801. We pulled our car to the side of the road and decided to go inside of the lava tube.

       We hiked on black lava rocky ground. Some rocks were pretty unstable, so it was a little difficult to walk even with running shoes there. I couldn't believe that some people did with flip-flops.

       We drove north to take more pictures on the Big Island.

       I uploaded my YouTube video which I recorded that day.
