Pāhoehoe vs ʻAʻā

Check out this photo of the newer pāhoehoe flows overtaking the older ʻaʻā flows from several years ago. There are many small native ʻōhiʻa trees also being covered by these flows.
It is always interesting when the lava flows into an area that it has not flowed in several years. This is what we are seeing on our private lava hikes, and our guests are being treated to some amazing photos and views this week!

THE LAVA IS BACK!

As of yesterday, when this photo was taken, we have resumed offering our private lava hikes to the surface flows on the coastal plains of the volcano. The location of the flows have changed over the past couple months and now require an 11-mi (17-km) round trip hike. This is a long difficult hike but it is worth every step to get within a hands reach of the flowing lava!

This part of Idaho feels a lot like the big island of Hawaii. #pahoehoe

Lava flashbacks and "Pele" presence memories from the Big Island have been running through the mind. 🌋 This experience reminded me that we all have to start somewhere and slowly move in the direction mana #energy points us through time. #lava #volcano #kalapana #direction #mahalokeakua #hawaii #island #aa #pahoehoe #hawaiian #mana #elements #pele #magma #MRODmedia2017 @willypetrovic 🙏 #goodmorning

61G flow
Both ends in one shot: the ocean entry in the distance plus the flow front up on the Pali. Pele is making her way down to the coastal flats, it's just a matter of days. This shot was taken a few days ago on a scouting trip up on Pulama Pali, just days before the lava dropped down on the steepest part of the Pali. #lava #61G #pahoehoe #lavaflow #hawaiivolcanoesnps #bigislandhawaii #volcano #geology #oceanentry #moltenrock #pele #kilauea
