The power of nature is thrilling, isn't it? I've always been fascinated by volcanoes and lava fields. I've never had the chance to see any in person but I hope to visit Hawaii one day so that I can experience them firsthand.

The volcanoes are a must see if you've visiting Hawaii. When I went I was able to get a spot on a tour to see one of the underground lava tubes. That was incredible!
