Many folks living now in Puna don't remember the red road from when it was actually paved in red cinder. I thought it would be fun to celebrate my many years of enjoyment at mile 17 by posting all the pictures I can find of my favorite painting spot, especially since recent road improvements have changed it radically. These older paintings show the mottled old road before they repaved it standard grey in 2000. If I wasn't careful, the road could end up looking like a big slab of bacon!!
