Aloha Viewers! Well we are happy to say we are back in business. We had a private tour today and they were able to see flowing LAVA. There were a lot of LAVA to see. Three massive fingers could be witness advancing down the Royal Gardens subdivision slope at a good moving paste. The tilt meter show inflation over the past 48 hours. Incredible inflation at this time. This could be viewed at the HVO website. The tour lasted around 7 hours total. About a 3.8 mile hike one way taking about 2 hours and 15 minutes each way and staying at the flow for more then 2 and 1/2 hours. While heading back from the lava to the parking area our guide and his guests could see break outs on the coastal plains. Lava flows on the coastal plains and the bottom of the Royal Gardens Hillside had spurred up and started flowing again. Tomorrow we will be taking our guest to those flows at 4pm and 5pm. Well until next time. A Hui Hou!
