For the first time in two months, we were able to access the lava lake at the Pu’u ‘O’o vent… and Pele welcomed us with wonderful spattering activity. As usual, several gorgeous pahoehoe flows were discovered within a mile of the vent. But nearly all the flows that rolled down Pulama Pali over the past two weeks are now gone… we found only one breakout there. Wonder where all that lava went! Paradise Helicopters’ pilot Paul Davis got us up close and personal to Pele’s fire… mahalo Paul! New Year’s Ducky joined us… he was dressed in his tux and ready to PAR-TAY!!! Happy New Year everyone! And don’t forget… we’ll have lots of interesting personalities on the upcoming “VolcanoScapes” series entitled “Hot Seat Hawaii!” Check out our brand new website hotseathawaii.com and meet the cast. Then stay tuned for exciting well-known guests, engaging visits with interesting Big Island folks… and of course, as always, the best Kilauea Volcano stills and aerial lava video anywhere! Coming soon! #HotSeatHawaii You never know who might show up in “the hot seat” next!
