Like so many others I have been watching the havoc wreaked by Kilauea for the last three weeks. It is hard to reconcile what I see now with what I saw in 2010 when my grandmother and I visited the Big Island. We visited all over Volcano National Park, walked through the Thurston Lava Tube, and were able to traipse around the hardened lava flows from past eruptions. It's hard to believe it is even the same place.
