The Awesomest Picture I've ever taken...

Here it is:

I went to hawaii in 2003, and hiked out on to the fresh lava flows to where the active lava was flowing.

It was such a crazy site. the lava was cascading down the hillside, clinker Aa lava was crashing down all over, and oozing out from the base of the slope was this small flow of pahoehoe lava. It was hissing slightly, quietly. I could have watched it for hours. in fact I think I stood there for well over an hour watching it. For scale, the picture represents about 5-6 feet, so the flow itself is about 3-4 feet across or so.


thats about all I have today....
