Mauna Lani view
The view from my balcony one evening. The ocean was pink!
We gathered at the Falls in Hilo near our house!
Our Zipline Group!
The Quest with Rod Roddenberry, and Nicolas Brendon from Buffy.
I love this smile.
Laura shoots us a saucy look!
My brother giving us a brave wave!
Jonathan became famous for his laugh.
And Rusty …everybody’s clown!
A refreshing swim in a private waterfall after the zipline and before our BBG lunch!
In Volcano National Park.
Uh oh. The Quest ended very badly.
We hiked into the cauldera of an active volcano!
What can I say, he likes to sniff sulfur cracks.
We went on a Sunset Cruise for my birthday!
My good friend Dario! He is an original Quester!
We all were taking pictures of the rainbow.
Special guest Amber Benson
Amber took a turn at the helm with Captain Spike! Yes that’s his name!
I finally got a decent photo with Rusty!
This time, to the LAVA!
Yes, we took an amazing boat ride out to where the lava was flowing into the sea!
The Goddess Pele was in a very fiery mood and showed herself in splendor!
We cooled off in the Rain forest.

Walk on the beach
A gorgeous beach walk outside of the hotel.
Along my walk I met 5 sea turtles having their rest.
The dormant volcano Kohala in the distance.
At out last dinner together, my Questers gave each other tributes!
It was one of my favorite moments of the entire trip. Everyone is just so wonderful.
