When Ailsa at Where’s my backpack? asked for photos of the four elements in this week’s Travel Theme: The Four Elements challenge, I immediately thought of Hawaii. My experience on the big island, hiking across the lava fields of Mt. Kilauea to the coast, sticks in my mind as a time when the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water all came together. The bright orange fire of the lava oozed from the volcano until it encountered the cooling waters of the Pacific Ocean. When the two met, the water was vaporized, becoming air, while the fiery lava was cooled, becoming new earth.

(In case you missed the reason for this, I participated in the A to Z Blogging Challenge in April, and though I posted every day, I was lousy at visiting and commenting on other blogs. So for each day in May, I’ve vowed to visit and comment on three posts, one of which MUST be from a new blog I haven’t yet visited.)

Awesome pictures. Not one of the places I’ve yet traveled too. I’m still blogging after a-z and continuing to work through the various linky’s. Finished the road trip linky, and am now doing more of the survival reflections linky, but have switched to the person’s current post. I did well with my visits during the a-z, but still didn’t reach everyone.

I’m working through the linky lists, too, but get so wrapped up in current posts that I don’t always get far enough back in the archives to reach the actual A to Z posts either! Regardless, there’s lots of good stuff out there, and I’ve got lots of new bookmarks.
