Guided Lava Hike-May 05, 2013

Aloha Folks! Tonight we had awesome activity. The surface flows broke out while we were there and we got close to them, while being safe. The heat was amazing and could be felt from 15 feet away. The ocean entry was just as active and could be seen from a safe vantage point as well. Lava is still entering the ocean, but there seems to be a tiny deflation, which can be credited to the breakout near the base of the Pali. This breakout happened two nights ago and the glow could be seen from the Kalapana Lava Viewing area. We could really see it from our tour area on Friday and it was amazing. A stream of lava coming down the Pali. This surface flow has since advanced onto the coastal plains. Higher on the Pali, the surface flow that broke out two weeks ago has also advanced, but is not rushing down the hill. Another successful guided lava hike. Lucky we live Hawaii, Aloha!
