Cattle on the edge

I used to live in the same town as Jim Whittaker, the first American to reach the summit of Mount Everest. He duly published an autobiography titled, ‘A Life on the Edge.’ As someone who lives close to the flat center surrounded by fluffy pillows, I use that phrase as a punchline for many things.

“I think I might have another cookie.” “Ooo, life on the edge.”
“I bought new shorts that are a slightly different tan shade than my previous pair.” “Life on the edge.”

You get the idea, which has nothing to do with anything really except that, on this day, the cattle in these photos really were living life on the edge.

    • Three actually. Kilauea and Mauna Loa are the two most active, but Hualalai is also considered active I believe, though it hasn’t erupted in more than 100 years. Mauna Kea is dormant with one last blast possible many years in the future. However, I live at the northern tip of the island, so eruptions from any of the active volcanoes wouldn’t be life threatening here. Probably the biggest impact would be to air quality and the ability to get to the airport and Costco!
