March 07, 2013 Guided Lava Hike

More great activity! Aloha. Our night was a great one being that we were able to safely view both the ocean entry and the surface flows. The ocean entry was very active as we saw lava pouring into the sea. Sometimes we would see chunks of lava flying in the air as the violent reaction of 1800 – 2000 degree lava hitting the pacific ocean took place before our eyes. Tutu Pele continues to visit the Kalapana area and also continues to create new land. About three hundred yards higher up we were able to safely get up close to surface flows. While at this surface flow, we witnessed multiple breakouts. The sight of new land flowing and being created was too much for some of our guests as they just sat or stood and stared in wonder. At the top of the Pali, there was a surface flow that is starting to peek over the horizon. Awesome evening, Aloha!
