After about a 3 month hiatus, I finally
got my kayak back in the water for a
short 3 mile paddle up the river to the
falls.  The canoe clubs were out in force
- looked like teenagers...
Lava Explosions @ Ocean Entry
July 19, 2008
The plume from the Waikupanaha ocean entry had been looking so magnificent, I finally decided to brave the tourists
and go have another look...
(5:41 PM) A look at the plume from the
parking area.
(5:42 PM) Up ahead (by the blue tent roof) is the turn-off to the viewing area.  
In the right-hand photo, there's a little dot next to the plume.  That's an airplane.
(5:45 PM) There's that plane again,
circling the plume.  It's a twin-engine...
(5:50 PM)Looking up at Royal Gardens.  Still got some surface flows up there...
(6:08 PM) Set up at "Set"

Check out the tornadoes or waterspouts or whatever they are...

The temperature differentials among the lava, the ocean, and the air, must be phenomenal...
