Had the mini van filled, me, three kids and two dogs. Setting off on a day trip adventure. Was blown away by the immediate views of the lava fields. Because of the dogs, we were not allowed to hike but I have heard great things about the lava trail and other hikes in the park.
The view of the cinders and spots of trees mingled among the background of the blue sky was breathtakingly beautiful.
Can't wait to come back again, this time without the dogs, just because I love to hike.
