Corey wants to make sure nobody reveals the score of the Oregon-USC game.
By the way, in case you haven't heard, the Ducks won 47-20.

In the early morning of March 19, 2008, a mile-high ash plume mixed with sulfuric gas and rocks erupted from the usually peaceful Halem'uma'u crater creating a new 100-foot-wide vent at the Jaeger overlook.  This was the first explosive eruption here since 1924.   Due to profuse production of sulfur dioxide (thousands of tons daily) the crater rim road was closed from the Jaeger visitor center to the chain of craters road, most of its entire length.  Here are three volcano shots, one of Halema'uma'u crater and two showing the effect of hot lava entering the sea.

While in the Hawaii Volcanoes NP we took the petroglyph hike to view some ancient Hawaiian petroglyphs.

We also saw many flowers, some at the Hawaii orchid farm and some at the farmers market in Hilo.

Spring is Here!
