Lava on the Big Island
Hiked approximately 2.5 miles to the current lava flows. Always stay on the 'designated' trails. A few years ago, an individual hiked too close to the ocean and 2-4 acres of the solidified lava shelf slipped beneath the waves. He was never seen again.

This is something most of the world does not see very often. What a neat sighting.

The hike over the cooled lava to the current lava flow was astonishing. I could feel the lava’s heat long before actually seeing it. Just the day before, I hiked across a snowfield to Mauna Kea’s summit.

It’s amazing our planet is still evolving. The Big Island is becoming larger every year whereas the other Hawaiian Islands are slowing eroding back into the sea.
