Big Island Helicopter Tour

Our helicopter for the tour of the volcano
Beautiful Rainbow Falls. Love that Big Island has such stark differences in landscape.
The active vents of the volcano. Pu'u o'o is seen on the right side, and the orange areas on the left are new sulfur deposits from Kamoamoa eruptions. Unfortunately, the eruptions (reaching 80 ft. in the air) stopped three days before we went.
Close up of Pu'u o'o.
Closer... no magma, though.
