Returning what belongs to Pele

Returning what belongs to Pele

November 15, 2003

Kilauea sits within the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. It is unlawful to remove objects from national parks. In addition, it is said that removing what is rightfully Pele's angers the goddess and bad luck will befall you. Nonetheless, people do take pieces of lava. Here I am returning lava to the crater that a friend removed.
