April 04, 2013-Guided Lava Hike

Aloha Folks! We had a really nice ocean entry tonight, but still no surface flows in the vicinity of the ocean entry. There was a bright glow near the base of the Pali, which is indicative of a surface breakout. We could clearly see the lava flowing into the ocean, but there was also a lot of steam. Up on the Pali, the surface flow is advancing downhill. We’ll just have to wait and see how this surface flow turns out. Also,¬†we could still see the glow from the Kahaualea flow and Pu’u O’o. Goodnight and A Hui Hou!
