June 15, 2013 Guided Lava Adventure

Aloha Folks! The ocean entry was really active and there were many entry points. Every¬†day the lava bench continually grows as lava continues to travel from Pu’u O’o and eventually flows into the ocean. The lava is flowing underground in the lava tube system, which insulates the magma until it breaks out and becomes lava. The farthest visible ocean entry point was where the littoral explosions were happening. Unfortunately there were no¬†surface flows that were visible last night. We did however see the red in cracks from recent flows. There was also a surface flow visible high up on the Pali as we were on our way home. Still good activity to be seen, Aloha!
