Pololu Valley has a spectacular sea cliff formed from a paleo debris slide. Beautiful gray crystals are seen in some of the cobbles. p113

TENERIFE, Santiago del Teide. Encontrar pahoehoe (lava cordada) en #Tenerife no es fácil excepto que conozcas bien la isla. La vemos muy bien de perfil en carreteras pero muy complicado verlas superficialmente que no sea en el parque nacional. Este es un ejemplo de este tipo de lava que una vez sale de las entrañas de la tierra circula a mayor velocidad que la lava aa gracias a su temperatura.

TENERIFE, Canary Islands. Lava pahoehoe. Not as common on the island as lava aa but this an example in Santiago del Teide by tourists sites. Day off for 2017 October interns organised by @geotenerife and #involcan in Gran Canaria and Tenerife #GasSampling

Walked in the shadow of a volcanic crater today, and sat next to an active lava flow. Appreciating the wonder and beauty of life today. #thankful #pahoehoe #flow #TūtūPele #FireGoddess #AlohaLife

Roadside Geology Hawaii (@rsghawaii)

It's a great time to visit the Big Island. The vent from Pu'u O'o regularly has breakout flows that can be seen after a moderate hike in the lava field. Because the flows are so new, there is still a thin crust of glass preserved on the surface of the basalt. Typically this weathers away and is not seen on older basalt. p87 #RSGHawaii

Great show from our favorite fire goddess #MadamePele last night! We felt the heat from this lava river from yards away. So much awe for this creative, dynamic force. .

This experience was surreal. We were able to see both types of lava -pahoehoe (pronounced 'paw-hoey-hoey") and aa (pronounced "ah-ah") -flowing into the water. Pahoehoe lava forms the smooth, ropey looking lava rocks and lava tubes. Aa lava creates brittle, bumpy looking rocks that are responsible for black sand beaches. The second picture is a lava rock we found while hiking across a hardened lava lake. I'm pretty certain it's composed of both types of lava. #bigisland #lava #pahoehoe #aa

Hawai'i Pacific Parks (@hawaiipacificparks)

There's no doubt about it, our partner #Hawaiʻi #Volcanoes #National #Park is spectacular. Live lava! Hard to beat for WOW value! When you have explored the park and seen the sights, pop into our park stores to see what we have that will keep you connected to the park long after your visit. ⠀

These colors and textures from Madame Pele, the Goddess of Fire. #pahoehoe

I don’t care if Monday is black.
Tuesday, Wednesday – heart attack.
Thursday, never looking back.
It’s Friday,
I’m in love!

The many textures of lava have me in awe. This is pahoehoe type that’s smooth and flows like a thick liquid. #bigislandhawaii
