Caption: Kilauea Iki Crater on Big Island of Hawaii, Oct. 2010, in light misting rain. Sapling Ohia lehua trees, Metrosideros polymorpha, grow on floor of crater, which formed during the 1959 eruption of Kilauea Iki. The solidified crust presents a rugged, broken surface honeycombed with collapsing lava tubes.
