October 16, 2012 Lava Tour Update

Aloha gang! Awesome tour again. Inflation at the summit and Pu’u O’o were steady. At the summit the Lava lake had rose over the inner ledge and flowed over the ledge. At Pu’u O’o the lava lake was visible from the coastal plains. Lava on the coastal plains were very active. The activity was at a high level due to inflation. Again many different breakouts could be seen during our tours.Couple breakouts were amazing. Flowing for over 100yards at times with large rivers of Lava flowing for long distances. One flow stood out for the night. Two of guides reported to experience a fountain of Lava breaking out from a tube system and flowing really fast for 50yards and then re-entering into another tube system. That was very impressive. Never ever seen that happening on the coastal plains. Book a tour now while the Lava is flowing. ALOHA!
