I can't decide if Scott chose this volcano as his subject because of it's raw power and beauty, or was it because he wanted to see how I would type
"Pu'u 'O'o", the name of the peak?

On the right is another view of Halema'uma'u crater, born in 1974.

The photo on the right is all that remains of a former five-diamond resort on the slopes of... Oh, nevermind, it's an outhouse.
