IN THE GOLD FLOOD OF LIGHT WHERE THE EARTH MEETS THE SUMMER SKIES



"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.. "
- Genesis 1:1










At 12 am on Friday night we started our adventure. We drove 3 hours and reached the edge of the lava field at 4 am. After two hours of hiking across the lava desert we reached the location where molten lava pours into the ocean. It is the most amazing sight I have ever seen and I am sure I will never see anything quite like it again. Lava was flowing on one side and the sunrise on the other it was truly a masterpiece. God is amazing. 
As a joke, we roasted marshmallows on some cracks in the Lava - just to say that we did. We didn't eat them because of the sulfur. 

After enjoying our time at the Lava field we drove over to the Southern most point of the united states. There is a 40 foot cliff people like to jump off. It also has a breathtaking view. From South Point we walked 1 hour to Green Sands beach. This is one of my favorite beaches here on Island. The sand is literally an olive great color.. its incredible. 

The best part of this weekend was that I spent it with two of my best friends. Its one thing to see these awe inspiring things but to share those experiences with others is so special.
