Tonight’s tours were successful, with two tours going out. The 4pm tour went out to the ocean entry and was guided by Jay. The 6pm tour also went out to the ocean entry and was guided by Ethan. Both said the West Ka’ili’ili ocean entry was very active. Flows on the Royal Gardens Pali had slowed down from two nights ago. The lava from the 26th of December that was flowing down the hillside in huge rivers found it’s way to the ocean. The massive amount of lava that came down the Pali is the reason for the DI deflation, which can be seen below.
