Driving and walking Crater Rim Drive is an explosive experience...

Detailed Description

Layers of explosive deposits erupted from Kīlauea Volcano in 17th and 18th centuries are visible in a road cut just beyond the gate at Keanakāko‘i Crater. This section of Crater Rim Drive has been closed since 2008, when the still-erupting vent within Halema‘uma‘u Crater (middle, far right) first opened. USGS photo.
