Noxious Volcano Sulfur Rocks
Photograph by Steve Nelson
Yellow sulfur builds up on lava rocks in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park as steam rises from a nearby fumarole.Rough ground devoid of life like this creates a strong contrast to the more typically pictured tropical paradise full of palm trees, warm ocean, and soft sunsets of Hawaii.
That’s why we love it.
Hawaii’s diversity is incredibly broad…from sea to summit, new ground to ancient ruins, barren to lush the islands cover the full spectrum.
