  • This is a much closer shot of the volcano I previously got a picture of from the ship, glowing red in the Reflection of the dawn's light.

    This is taken from atop Kileleah Volcano. Mauna Loa is the world's largest volcano in terms of sheer mass. It's huge. We were fortunate to be there on a rare clear day. It's usually so overcast that you can't see Mauna Loa very clearly at all from a distance.
