We took a short hike across the lava flow to see some petroglyphs.
This is part of the largest set of Petroglyphs in the United States.
This is the Chain of Craters Road, which descends 3,700 feet in 20 miles and ends where lava flows crossed the road in 2003.

The lava is very shiny.

The coastline at the edge of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is very rough. This is where hot lava flows into the sea creating new land.
Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles would come up on the beach outside our room every day.
The turtles would just lay on the beach all day. Can you blame them?

There were may pretty flowers around the hotel property.
