This is an Aa lava flow. It’s like walking on bbq lava rocks. The kind that go in the bottom of your glass grill. They are sharp and you don’t want to fall. I much prefer walking on #pahoehoe lava. #volcano
Happy Aloha Friday! I'm continuing to get through a backlog of photographs. Much like the duration and delay of road construction on the island, this image is a year overdue. This image is from a most memorable night--exploring the 61G lava flow just after a new breakout was reported.
Our guests on this private lava hike went extreme and accessed a newly formed flow far from the crowds. This is a fairly rare moment to see the transition from pāhoehoe to ʻaʻā. The first clip is real time and the second clip of this video is a timelapse.
