Pele stretches under her skirt!

This is an amazing photo I found on the web credited to CK Horne. I love how it shows the new land formation under the water. It also shows why we have had so much 'vog' recently. Normally we don't have 'vog' (volcanic fog) in Kohala, but, in winter our wind patterns shift and when our regular Trades drop and the wind shifts to come out of the south we get 'vog' carried up to the north of the island. Actually the entire Hawaiian island chain experiences this vog coverage under these conditions.

Does being the victor make you happy?

Kilauea's Halema'uma'u Crater smiles to the heavens this morning (photo Paradise Helicopters). Located in Hawaii Volacanoes National Park, the 11th US national ratified by Woodrow Wilson in 1916 and a World Heritage Site, Kiluea welcomes over 2.5 million visitors anually. In Hawaiian mythology Kilauea, which means spreading or spewing, is the body of godess Pele (fire, volcano, lightning, wind) and Halema'uma'u is the scene of her epic battles with the rain god Kamapua'a. He was jealous of her ability to shoot lava into the sky so he cloaked her in ferns and choaked her out.
