Episode 9

Episode 9
The Ibama Twins flew out last evening for Hawaii and flew straight to the Big Island which is called Hawaii too.

You  see them here in Volcanoes National Park where lava is still flowing into the Pacific Ocean and creating great billows of steam. If course when the lava flows it is red hot as you see it below.

Max asked the National Park Ranger  "How close can we get to the lava?" And the ranger said, "As close as you like." Ha!

 Kīlauea (pronounced /kiːlaʊˈeɪ.ə/ in English, [ˈkiːlouˈɛjə] in Hawaiian) is an active volcano in the Hawaiian Islands, one of five shield volcanoes that together form the island of Hawaiʻi. It is the most recent of a series of volcanoes that have created the Hawaiian archipelago, as the Pacific Plate moves over the Hawaii hotspot.[1] Kīlauea means "spewing" or "much spreading" in the Hawaiian language, in reference to the mountain's frequent outpouring of lava. In the Hawaiian religion, the volcano is home to Pele, the goddess of volcanoes. Kīlauea is one of the most active volcanoes on the planet[2] and an invaluable resource for volcanologists.


  1. WOOT!!! Over to Hawai'i I hope they don't get to close to the lava. :) It's a site to behold I tell ya :)
