Run!, Hawaii, 1975

The volcanologist is Robin Holcomb who worked for the Observatory and then went on to a distinguished career at the University of Washington where he was involved with the Mount St. Helens explosion! The tips of his shoes are whitish, as we had to put fiberglass caps over regular boots so that the sharp new lava didn't cut them to shreds. Both of us returned to the scene in Hawaii in 2009 for an hour-long NG Television special called “Lava Hunter”
