Our trip to South Point was filled with wonder and unnecessary stress. The wonder was due to the incredible landscape where we crossed through lava flows, then back into forest, and back again. The stress was the needle on the gas gauge dropping faster than I’d expected.
We can chalk the stress up to “different car syndrome” or, if you’d prefer, bad judgment. Either way, we were rapidly approaching what I called “the point of no return”—that halfway point on a journey where you know you can get back as long as you make an immediate U-turn—when we found a station in Ocean View.
From that point forward, the trip was stress free and the wonder at nature’s power took center stage. I hope you enjoy the photos of our journey that was South Point or bust!
