Kilauea Iki Crater

Our last look at Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park before we move on.  The overlook of Kilauea Iki Crater is along Crater Rim Drive.  Kilauea Iki may look quiet today, but in 1959 rivers of molten lava flowed along its floor:

The overlook is on the northeast corner of the crater, and in the background you can see the smoking Kilauea Caldera.
