October 12, 2012 Tour

Aloha! We had an awesome show last night with beautiful weather and very nice surface breakouts. Both of our groups were able to safely view these surface flows. The finger of lava that we were at had multiple breakouts that flowed really nicely as it broke out. There is still an ongoing DI inflation being recorded by the tiltmeter. The leading edge from a few days ago was stalled out, but more flows started just above these stalled out fingers. There were also more surface flows that were visible, but we were not able to get up close to these flows. Up on the Pali there were some break outs visible from our location as well as from the Kalapana Lava Viewing Area. Overall activity is good, so book your tour now. Until next time, Aloha
