Nothing excites me more than hiking and exploring a volcanic landscape.
In 2010 I published a major natural history coffee-table book on British Columbia’s volcanic plateau titled Motherstone. The most exciting explorations were within the three great shield volcanoes of the West Chilcotin; the Rainbow, Ilgatchuz and Itcha volcanoes. Last month, my partner Rita and I went to explore another volcanic landscape, the shield volcanoes of the Island of Hawaii. The big difference is that the volcanoes of the Chilcotin are dormant, many of the volcanoes on Hawaii are active. We found it an exciting place to be.
Over the next few weeks I will share some images made in both areas. They were both exciting areas to explore, and connect with Mother Earth.
This eruption started in May, 2018 and by August 35 sq. km of land had been covered by lava flows. About 4 sq. km of new land had been created in the ocean. The flows were declared inactive in December.
One definitely felt that rousing the ire of planet Earth was not a good idea!
