Ok, the photo is nothing spectacular, but it’s a window into what you will see if you hike the Kīlauea Iki Trail. You’ll descend through rainforests onto and over a solidified lava lake, passing a still-steamy cinder cone along the way. It’s a cool trail I’ve written about that’s been published in today’s edition of the National Parks Traveler as part of the Traveler’s “Trails I’ve Hiked” series.

Comments Off on Trails I’ve Hiked: Kīlauea Iki Trail
Great Basin National Park is a high-elevation park. So here’s a trail I’ve hiked that helps to acclimate one to the elevation and dry atmosphere. And my article has been published in the National Parks Traveler.

As for this image, I hiked to Stella Lake during a hot, dry summer season in this national park. As such, Stella Lake looked more like a pond with a “bathtub ring” of wood debris around the edges. It was still beautiful out there, though, and it’s definitely a hike you should consider if you visit this national park located within basin and range landscape.
There’s a series occasionally published by the National Parks Traveler called “Trails I’ve Hiked.” I recently wrote about hiking the Cinder Cone Trail in Lassen Volcanic National Park and it’s published in today’s edition of the Traveler.
Click the image to check out the article. Maybe you’ll want to visit this national park and hike this trail. There are certainly fewer crowds along this trail than along other popular ones in the park.
This image is an iPhone shot I captured during my hike back down the steep, unconsolidated pumice and volcanic ash trail after spending time at the Cinder Cone summit. In the distance, on the upper right corner, you can see Butte Lake surrounded by the black blocky rock of Fantastic Lava Beds. Butte Lake is where this trail begins, so I had a little bit to go to get back to my vehicle.
