Even though this house/ranch is surrounded on all sides by active lava fields, this place is still sought after by people with $$$, who go there for a retreat. You have to be flown in and out of here. Pretty amazing.
The beautiful colors of the coastline next to the stark contrast of fresh lava fields and new vegetation. Amazing colors.
You can see a road in the middle of the photo that abruptly ends in the lava field. This is where we drove to and took the pictures seen in the next post. End of the highway.
Blue Hawaiian Helicopters... the best option for touring Big Island. Dad used to fly for this company.
At the lava fields... You could feel the intense heat rising between cracks in the ground.
