We Live, Sleep and Breath Lava
The lava over the years has camped in our back yard at least 4 times, stayed way past it’s welcome point, built way to many campfires along with changing our landscape. We evacuated 2 times, ran three times and helped our neighbor’s leave once! We have seen it take beaches, houses, farms, roads and people’s lively hood.
We get asked “are you ever scared?” The answer lies in the beholder and for me it never seems to really cross my mind much since it sleeps in my back yard and we’re best friends. Now that we provide lava hiking tours on a daily basis I spend even more time learning, educating and understanding how to live with a crazy, unpredictable, unedifying and unforgiving creature called lava.
We live, sleep and breath lava and wouldn’t change a thing!! For Cheryl and myself lava hiking will always have it’s challenges, but will remain and always run deep in our hearts.
