Here are some picts taken of Kilauea volcano's molten lava flow with my good friend John Alexander (Dolphin Bay Hotel in Hilo HI.). John and I have been "playing" with the molten lava for years and have made countless trips into the "back side" of the flow area with his 4 wheel drive. This lava flow is continuing to flow into the ocean to this day and images like some of these can be seen by any adventurous visitor (bring your hiking boots!).
This is a small lava "breakout".
This is me "scooping" the lava with a shovel.
Here is a shovel full of fresh, molten, "pahoehoe" lava close up.
Working with the lava.
Embedding a silver dollar into the molten lava.
This is a "lava fall". Yep...thats me.
Here I am again next to a hot breakout.
Lava "ropes" forming.
This is called a "skylight". Its a hole in the roof of a lava tube looking down at the molten river inside.
Lava entering the sea causing explosions.
Another nice "Phreatic" explosion.
This is all that remained of the $1.5 million Wahaula Visitor Center.
Me atop a sea arch.
