Hawaii Lava Tube

Here's the last of my scenic scanned photos from our 1997 trip to Hawaii (taken from a print from a point-and-shoot film camera). It's a lava tube; in an old eruption, lava flowed out of this tube.
You can get a sense of its size by the people dimly visible on the left railing just before it's completely dark. And yes, we walked into the tube, and it was a very unique experience on many levels.

Please visit the new Vintage Weekly meme, which is picking up where Sunday Scans left off. I'll certainly be a regular participant there!

  1. Love the way the vegetation has regenerated. What was the temperature in the tube compared to the outside world, hot or cooler.

  5. You did well - hard to get a good picture looking into a tube. I always thought I'd do Sunday Scans someday -- now I guess I'll say that I'll do Vintage Weekly someday. (First I've got to take time to scan seven million photos ;>)!) I'm glad you did that!!

  6. Looks like an interesting place, the linky btw is open for business-thanks for the plug:) I posted one of my fathers old photographs on it as he wanted me to post some of his old images. I was still using my Advantix camera in 1997, I didn't change to digital until 2005.

  7. Oh wow, that is so fascinating! Normally, I only think of the lava spewing out of the crater during eruptions. But now that you've pointed it out, yes, they do come out elsewhere.
