Lava Hike-June 16, 2013-Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all Dads out there! Tonight was a great night. The ocean entry was great and so was the surface flow. Unlike last night, tonight there were surface flows that we safely approached. This flow broke out from a tumulus along the lava tube. This flow split in two as it flowed down the side of the tumulus. What a welcome sight. Since we were able to get close to this surface flow, we could feel the heat and hear the sound of molten rock making it’s way across already hardened lava. this flow got bigger as time passed, but may have already stalled out since we left. One thing is for sure and that is the flows are constantly changing and never the same. Have a great night, Aloha!
