Aloft over Kilauea
Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii
05 Oct 2004
Flying over Kilauea's active vents. Yes, that's hot magma down in that cone - it's the only red stuff we saw.
I couldn't smell anything, but between the twisting and turning we were doing at this point and whatever was in the air we were breathing, I did start feeling just a little queasy.
