One of my favorite vacations was a stay at the Kilauea Volcano Military Camp inside Volcano National Park back before I retired from the Air Force. One day we hiked through the jungle to see the Pu`u `O`o cone, and of course we took a tour of the caldera. Fantastic vacation!

Supposedly Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain in the world or something like that.

Anyway, yeah Pele does what she wants in regards to the aina and lava.

So Pele is over all volcanos, not just one, huh?

Seems like most movie reference make it sound like just one volcano.

What I mean by aina and lava...

She makes new land, thus she controls where new land is made. She is also the lava, which makes the new land...

Yes I.

Fantastic video! It is really amazing to see something like this and yet a little frightening. If I was living anywhere near there I would be worried. Thank you for posting.

Amazing! I don't really remember when was the last time i saw something like that.

posted on Mar, 6 2011 @ 06:25 PM
I can't wait to tell everyone at work about this! I've been telling these folks about the March 4th Brown Dwarf barrelling through our solar system. This'll be all the proof I need! MUWHAHAHAHA

Nice post OP.
Brings back great memories, My wife and I were out that way watching the lava flows
Back in 2002,. She was barking at me cause I was always wondering off the yellow
arrowed paths to get close up shots of the flows,.. very cool.... and well, extremely HOT.
One of our best trips, we did a helicopter tour also,. something I would recommend

Much to see..

a mixture of emotions - one of
which would be fright.

My mother is planning a vacation in Hawaii sometime around July, does anyone know if she should reconsider because of this?
I've noticed Hawaii has lots of lil earthquakes everyday it looks, does this always happen or just recently?

Great information there! Star and Flag!

What "stuck-out" to me were the "over-hanging rim rock-facings," which have fallen into the "lava-pit" for the last few weeks and the fluctuation of the intensity and level of lava production. The new "fissure" is very interesting; and its sudden appearance.

A link to the USGS page for new volcanic activity of Hawaii is posted below, in-case anyone wants to bookmark and read further.

Great article and information!

I have been there, been up and down crater road and to the end that was a hi-way until the lava piled up over it for good. I walked out onto the lava benches with my dad and others as the lava seeped out and felt the heat go up my shorts as vents were all over the place. It probably wasnt the smart thing to do but they did allow it and rangers were out there with us to make sure people did not get into to much trouble.

You could get cut off from the lava real easy if you were not paying attention and it almost happend to my group if I did not warn the ranger in time as a big one opened up right behind her and that was our only way out.

Who ever made this video had balls of steel because one drop of that lava would eat right through a suit and the ground is basically floating on hot lava or hollow vent tubes formed quickly.

Seeing all that when I was out there made it all worth it. The volcano is so gradual and spread out you cant judge its size till you go to the park and walk over to this edge with rails and old viewing cams. The crater is massive.

I've went and viewed the lava as well. Quite an experience to say the least.

When I went to the lava flow a several years back before they got more strict, I was able to get really close to the lava and yeah, you are definitely putting your life on the line by venturing out there.

There was a point where I was on walking on fresh lava rock, and I could see lava underneath through a crack. Yeah, it was really intense.

Absolutely worth it though. But severely dangerous.
