Hawaii - Spouting Horn

One of the cool tourist things we saw while in Hawaii was Spouting Horn. This is a lava formation on the shore and when waves crash in, water is pushed through and underground tunnel and sprays up into the air, sorta like Old Faithful. However, Spouting Horn also makes a hissing sound like a dragon breathing fire.

Very cool.

Here is a picture of the hole where the water comes up. Look near the white frothy area and you can see how the water pours back into the hole.

And here is Spouting Horn erupting!
