June 07, 2013-Guided Lava Hike

Aloha Gang! The activity was great once again and both surface flows and ocean entries were active. Multiple surface flows could be safely approached and these flows were near the ocean entry, so we didn’t have to go far to see either. We went back and forth between both of these areas and both were spectacular. Every once in a while we would see a littoral explosion at the ocean entry and bits of lava were visibly being thrown into the air. As night fell these pieces that looked black in the daylight were red at night. Great activity, ¬†Aloha!
