Day 44 - Light Appetizers

Our second full day on the island of Hawai'i found us making the drive to Volcanoes National Park. There is so much to see and learn in the park. We were lucky to see "an ash laden plume rising from a new crater within Halema'uma'u at the summit of Kilauea." While it is not the lava flow that many people envision when imagining a volcano, it is an active eruption. The scientists and park rangers were pretty excited about this development and their excitement was contageous. The kids said that we must go back if the lava lake ever rises to a level that it can be seen from the top of the crater.

Since I was caught up in the day's sightseeing, I didn't tackle my sketch until we were at dinner. We ate at a Mexican restaurant in the town of Kona. While we were there I sketched our bowl of salsa and empty chip basket. I also added in a sketch of one of the wall sconces.
