Sorry for not posting a blog for November 5, 2012 Lava tours. It was very rainy and wet. As for November 6, 2012 our guides had reported to see some nice flows and a lot of breakouts on the coastal plains. The leading edge is approximately 0.5 mile away from the ocean. But our guides also reported that the flows looked kind of slow though. Considering the strong inflation for more then 3 weeks. We are anticipating to have an inflation later on today. Book at tour soon or on the next inflation. ALOHA!
