Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

“What a shock. What a disappointment. I didn’t see much. I barely saw smoke. I didn’t see any lava black or red. Even with the telescope, I didn’t see lava and the amount of smoke coming out of the volcano was like the amount you’ll see when someone blows out a birthday candle. It was like viewing an empty field  that is ready for construction at a construction site”

“Ugh. The only thing more boring than a museum is a national park.  At least in a museum you’re indoors, protected from the elements, and usually there’s at least a cafe that serves booze. I drove two hours, spent $220 on a rental car and $10 admission fee for this?!  Some measly steam vents and a large charred piece of earth?  Where’s the spewing lava?  Where’s the toxic gas?  Where’s the pyroclastic flows?  On the other hand, what else is there to do in Hawaii other than to pretend to enjoy the natural surroundings?”
