Build bridges, not walls and fences... unless there's an advancing lava flow, in which case, a fence sometimes does the job. 👌🌋😅
.
In summer 2014, Kīlauea's East Rift Zone vent: Pu'u 'O'o erupted a lava flow that would threaten the town of Pahoa, East Hawai'i.
.
This fence was in place around around a brand new waste and recycling site which the lava flow headed directly for. The fence actually helped in breaking the flow down into smaller flows through the grid in the fence which then cooled quicker and stopped faster.🚫😥 @brett_halsey_ for scale
.
The fence resulted in the lava stopping only a few meters from the town's new recycling plant! Just an example of how human intervention can sometimes prove useful in hazard mitigation and prevention. ☺️😮💪👊🌋

Galapagos Seaman Journey anchored at James Bay (Santiago Island) in the Galapagos archipelago. To walk on the lava is a true experience, the black sea of molten rock and desolation gives an idea to how the Islands initially formed.

My first flaming drink, the Pahoehoe! And no I didn't just make that up, it's a vintage cocktail from 1970. And damn it is delicious! #pahoehoe #tiki #tikibar

Warming up, before I start digging out the eight foot snow-drift blocking my door. One more cup of coffee... #pahoehoe #lava #kilauea #volcano #hawaii
