May 25, 2013-Guided Lava Hike

Aloha! Our tour was awesome because of the activity that we saw. Although there was a deflation, the ocean entry and surface flows were really active. The lava bench had collapsed further and is extremely active. Waves continue to pummel the ocean entry points, slowing them down slightly, but after a short time lava breaks out again and continues to pour into the Pacific Ocean. The surface flows were awesome as well. All of our groups were able to safely get up close to surface flowing lava. Breakouts would occur then stall and inflate and another breakout would happen shortly after. Great night! To top it all off the sunset was Beautiful. Yes, I used a capital B. The sunset at the lava was that good. Until next time, Aloha!
