Lava at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Today I dug out the maps and bits and pieces I brought home from Hawaii. I want to make pages for some of the park stamps I collected in my sketchbook while we were there. I thought I might be hauling too many brochures and maps home, but now I wish I had packed even more! This page is about the types of lava on the island..the smooth and curvy pahoehoe, and the ouchie a'a. Facinating stuff, how the earth is formed!

Here is a pic of the a'a's truly next to impossible to walk over! Looks like another world, doesn't it?

 While I was at it I added a Hibiscus to the corner of the page I did awhile back. It looked a little blank it got the state flower.
