Volcano Adventure with James

We had a visitor over the New Year weekend. His name was James. He is Mary’s brother who lives in NY City. They refer to this location as the “big apple.” I like apples!

See how closely I can watch alpha eat the apple, I even get the core if I’m good.
Watch closely
It is a long drive to Volcano National Park but I like driving in the car because I always get to meet new people and new smells.

I usually get to have the whole back seat to myself, but this time I had to share with James.
backseat
He is a nice human, he gave me lots of loves and feed me when alpha was not looking. The volcano was stinky. Lots of fumes coming out of the ground.

I did get to clear my nose with the smells of some rain forest plants like these…
Amau
Ohia

while we walked down an old road that was closed after a large earthquake. Some of the road fell into the caldera.

I had a great time with James at the Volcano, I hope he comes back so we can share the backseat again and those treats while alpha wasn’t looking!
