Volcano National Park, Big Island

What an awesome park on Big Island. Great hikes like the Kilauea Iki Trail, including a walk thru Rain forest and a crater. Then seeing lava glowing at night time, a street covered with lava. Just awesome scenery! Here some picture impressions:

On Top Of The World

Together with Adam and Marco who I met in the Hostel in Hilo, I went up to the top of the world, or more precise to Mauna Kea on Big Island, Hawaii. Well first I thought Mt. Everest is the highest mountain on this plant. But little did I know, that they are not only counting the above sea level hight which is 4.207m but also including the parts from the Ocean level and here Mauna Kea wins with 10.200m.

Coming from sea level to 4.207m in a couple of hours was already challenging and I felt a bit dizzy but the view was stunning. With the massive telescopes and a great sunset it felt like a place far away from earth and thus like on top of the world.
