In 1990, you could park near the far edge of the Kilauea's Hale Ma'uma'u Volcano Crater and walk right up to the edge. I wanted to get a picture, but DW refused to get out of the car and made me leave the keys. Her fears were not unfounded. This week, most of the parking lot collapsed into the crater.

Your wife might have waited awhile. It only took 28 years for that collapse. ;)

I've stood on the edge of that crater several times over the years. Given recent events, I'm surprised it only now has collapsed. Pele has plans, I think.

Now she won't even think about staying on the Big Island.
