The caldera is huge and filled with smoke and steam. Although we were there during the day, amid all the smoke and the steam we did get to see lava bursts from Halema’uma’u crater. The observation area got very crowded so it was a challenge to get good photos. A visit to Jagger Museum is a must. It helped me to have a better understanding of volcanic activity and to become more aware of the different types of lava. The Park website is excellent . By going to “what’s going on with the volcano” there is a wealth of information including the current conditions and videos showing lava flow, etc
