On the drive from the airport to the condo,
we saw fields of lava everywhere.

Petroglyphs abound in the lava field.

The King's Trail leads through the lava.
It was built for horse travel in the mid-19th century.

This natural lava cave provided shelter for those
who camped here while traveling the trail.
