OK, so I picked up one tiny rock but I did not cause the volcano the following week. A great walk on a sunny day. Calm, quiet, beautiful.

We did the easy 45 minute walking tour with our kids (youngest is seven). It was fascinating! Our guide was quite knowledgeable, and it was a very unique experience. It’s a short drive from Hilo!
