March 12, 2013 – Guided Lava Hike

Aloha! Tonight’s tour was good as we were able to safely view both the ocean entry and surface flow. The wind was blowing better today as it switched back to our normal trade winds. The trade winds blow the fumes away from us and clears our tour area. The past few days we had south winds which were blowing the fumes in and around the area where our tours take place. The ocean entry┬áis still active and adding land to the Big Island, while the surface flows were just as good. We were able to get up close to this surface flow and witness the formation of new land.

Up on the Pali, we were able to see some surface flows just making their way over the crest of the hill. All in all it was a good night as the weather was also good. Goodnight and A Hui Hou!
