"Chain of Craters Road" Chain of Craters Road Tip by Blatherwick
Chain of Craters Road, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park: 24 reviews and 49 photos
Coming down from the volcanos to the coast, losing 4000 feet, you travel along a shore road that used to provide another entry route into the park from Hilo. Numerous lava flows have covered this road with the latest one when I was there having occurred on February 22, 2003.
It is here that you can explore the moon-like landscape and catch glimpses of lava. I really like this picture because of the "No Parking" sign trapped in the solidified lava. Obviously nobody paid attention because absolutely everybody is parked nearby.
