This pile of lava is in the park, thus the name, Lavaland RV Park. If you look on Google Maps you can see a large deposit of lava to the west of the RV Park. A couple of years ago this was a very active volcano area. (might have been more than a couple)
Today my project will be to study some of the information I picked up at the visitor center and formulate a plan of attack for enjoying the good life.
