This truck, carrying diesel gasoline, backs down Chain of Craters Road. This road was covered by lava in the early 2000s. The state of Hawaii, however, was beginning construction on opening this road back up as an emergency exit for the residents of Pahoa, a town being threatened by lava. As a result, we weren't able to go any farther than this down the road.
