Guided Lava Hike-April 28, 2013

Aloha Folks! More awesome lava activity tonight. The surface flows were amazing as well as the ocean entry. The newest ocean entry that was flowing last night had stalled again and was not flowing when we got to our tour area, but there was a surface flow that was making it’s way towards the ocean and was within 20 feet from the cliff edge. This flow was an A’a flow, which we don’t get to see very often. This a’a lava crumbles and falls apart very easily. The ocean entry that was further away from us was flowing extremely well and could be seen from our area. We did get a little damp towards the end of our trip, but nothing too bad. A beautiful night, Aloha!
