Sizable pahoehoe lava flows, a tumulus outbreak, and numerous skylights, all within a steamy flow field… this surface activity within about 3 miles of the vent, but still a mile or more above the Pali… and nothing else anywhere on the flow field Thursday morning. Wonderful activity! Merry Monarch Festival Ducky joined Leilani, Special Return Guest (two weeks in a row!) Scott Longman, Bruce Omori and me as Paradise Helicopters’ superb pilot, Robert Mitchell guided us over Pele’s amazing canvas… good to have you back on Hot Seat Hawaii, Rob! 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!
