... you could see the whole of the crater and the caldera, and all the natural gases and steam coming out. Really good view :) After this, we headed back to the Paniolo Cottage. Today Dev looked up the word Paniolo, and it's meaning is the word for Hawaiian Cowboys! Pretty cool. It was BBQ time :-D after banging out some really nice pork burgers and hotdogs, and some local wine ;-) we got into the hot tub and chilled out for awhile :-) Tomorrow is our last full day in Volcano! ...

... the earth! It was really deep, and amazing to see a giant hole in the ground. Now we understood what the warning sign was talking about! There were also flowers along the trail, which, as usual, makes everything even that much better.
Even though it wasn't even 4:00 yet, we decided it would be a good idea to get some dinner before our long hike. We had heard about and seen a lot of L&L Barbecues in our time on the island, so we ...
