Today started at church.
Then the bakery...
We headed back to the house to try and nap
but Hunter was not having any of that.
We gave up and headed to the park to hike
Kīlauea Iki Crater lava lake.
Of course Hunter slept on the way.
The crater hike was amazing!
I am so glad we waited until today to do it because it was cloudy and cooler.
I don't think we would have made it the whole 4+ miles with Hunter if it was hot and sunny.
Ryan carried Hunter in the pack for the first part but once we got into the crater
he walked a lot and loved it!
I couldn't believe how good he was at walking so much.
We made it all the way across just before it was getting dark.
We stopped and ate a picnic before climbing the stairway back out of the crater.
I am so glad we decided to do this!
It was probably one of my favorites of the trip.
It was dark and cold by the time we got to the car
and we were all tired so we headed home for the night.
