Lava Activity at Kilauea

During late April and early May, the volcanic activity at Kilauea really picked up. The lava lake inside Halema'uma'u crater overflowed its banks and spilled out onto the caldera floor resulting in a spectacular show! Betty and I spent two weekends in the rain, wind and cold to view this amazing sight and it was definitely worth it! The lava has receded underground for now, but could surface again at any time.

If you ever get an opportunity to see flowing lava, by all means take it!
