Lava Hike
October 30, 2009
Back for more!
Right image identical to left image except for overlay from 10/30 showing the most recent lava flows (dark red).  Previous
flows are shown in lighter red.  I hiked out toward where I'd been on
10/27 (green line) and took pictures of the "lavafall"
vegetation) until I intersected the trail to the vegetation) until I intersected the trail to the
ViewViewing area (yellow line).  
Then I hiked back to the car (magenta line).ing area (yellow line).  Then I hiked back to the car (magenta line).

For those of you who haven't been paying attention, this is the area marked "Booth".  To the
flow at "E O R" (
End Of Road)
Here's the E O R...
People standing around the end of the road.  The lava isn't really moving that I
could tell.  What's burning is the asphalt underneath
Over on the right, near "006" is this
"lavafall".
11:18 AM @ 006
What's most interesting about this "lavafall" is that it is located right where I rested on 10/27.  Three days ago, I was lying
under a bush in the shade, taking a break.  Now...  Something to think about...

These were taken from the loop in the
yellow line when I was out hiking the
edges of the new lava.  The new lava
is the silvery stuff...

There's this little shelter at the back of
the viewing area.  I stopped in to have
a rest...
This is the view from the shelter...

Here's an excellent view from 10/29
