October 14, 2012 Lava Tour Update

Aloha everyone! Steady Inflation at the summit and Pu’u O’o vent heightened the activity on the coastal plains. Lava flows on the coastal plains were wide spreadĀ  with many different flows to see. Our tours were at the most eastern lobe on the coastal plains which was heading east towards the Waikupaianaha ocean entry. Still a far ways away but moving steady. Gps readings of the flow front was just under a mile from the ocean. With this much amount of LAVA erupting out of the earth, an ocean entry is possible.

Tours lastnight was very successful. The hiking out took both tours just about 1 hour and a 1/2 each way. Viewing was incredible. Alot of pressure made the flows spectacular. Gentle flows erupted into huge rivers of LAVA lastnight. Book a tour now while the LAVA is hot.
