August 29,2013 Guided Lava Hike Update

Aloha everyone! Surface activity on the coastal plains remained very active. The leading edge of the flow has advanced since it broke out two weeks ago. Lava continued to be just about 1/2 mile away from ocean. Our guides had reported  to witness a beginning of a new ocean entry. There was a small breakout just above the previous ocean entry. It seems that the existing tube system that was being fed by Lava is still occupied. Ocean Viewing might be active in this up coming week. Our groups were able to safely view these flows up close. Multiple breakouts happened while we were at the flow and they were very good. Surface breakout were also visible near the base of the Pali. Another great night, Aloha!
