    Thousands stream in to watch this volcano

     
    Thousands stream across the lava flow at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park when Kilauea Volcano decides to make a run for the ocean. The flows are miles long.
    While they follow a safe trail, I usually head up the mountain side to the vent. It is a 3,000 foot climb with no trail and no help. But the views are incredible as the lava comes down the steep slope (pali) and crosses the lava plain a mile away and reaches the sea. But for those who get there at night and have flashlights to find their way out, it is the show of a lifetime. But it is a long and dangerous trek across incredible terrain, but well worth it if you are young and fit. All the lava you see is fresh and hot, it all had flowed down the mountain in the two days prior to our visit. Mothers Day, 2004. The big flow, and memorable.
