June 18, 2013 Guided Lava Hike

Aloha! We had great activity at both the ocean entry and surface flows. The newly formed bench had collapsed late Monday night or some time Tuesday. The farthest visible ocean entry was very active as lava was being flown into the air by the littoral explosions. The surface flows were very active and small rivers of lava were flowing towards the Cliffside. These flows we safely approached and were able to get within a few feet. These new surface flows have covered the area we have been viewing the ocean entry from and creating new ocean entry points. All in all it was an awesome night, Aloha!
