March 22, 2013 – Guided Lava Hike

Aloha! Surface flows were hard to find tonight, but we were able to find some small surface flows. The ocean entry however was good as our groups were able to see lava flowing into the ocean. We didn’t cancel tonight because the winds weren’t blowing the fumes into our tour area. The winds were blowing straight onshore, which is enough to miss our tour area. Up on the Pali, there was a faint glow┬áin the sky. This glow is coming from Pu’u O’o and also from the Kahaualea flow, which is approximately 2.5 mi away from Pu’u O’o. Another great night. Aloha!
