#DidYouKnow? There are more than 155 miles of hiking trails in your national park. Which one have you always wanted to explore, but haven't had the chance yet? #FindYourPark #NPWest #MaunaUlu (NPS Photo/Jay Robinson)

Hiked to the edge of a volcano today! Last erupted in 1974 but still smokin'. #maunaulu #sistertrek2017 #allykatandlmo #hawaii

Hiked to the top of Mauna Ulu, one of the 4 active volcanoes on the big island 🌋#hawaii #thebigisland #maunaulu #volcano #hike

Mauna Ulu: The Growing Mountain. Hard to describe how terrifying it was to walk up to the edge of this giant crater, steam vents still swirling. 🌋🌋🌋

Mauna Ulu
Cooling Cracks
This lava flow is from the 1974 Mauna Ulu flow which added about 230 acres to the island! These cooling cracks formed on the surface of this low viscosity pahoehoe flow. The surface of lava flow cools quickly even though the flow may continue on beneath the surface. This lava also has a very shiny golden brown color to it which also indicates a fast cooling rate. #coolingcracks #volcano #hawaii #pahoehoe #maunaulu

Vigorous spattering at the summit lava lake in Halemaumau!

The fluid nature of the lake can be seen when lava hits the wall and flows downward like syrup. The thin, flexible nature of the crust is also shown here, as the bursting gas bubbles rip and fold the thin skin on the lake. This video was taken from the rim of the crater, an area that remains closed to the public due to ongoing volcanic hazards.

The summit eruption has been putting on quite a show this past week at our sunset viewings. Contact us today to book your private tour of the worlds most active volcano - GO SEE THE FLOW WITH A PRO - info@kilaueaecoguides.com

Major collapse in the crater wall at Halemaumau crater!

We have been waiting for this large section of loose rock to fall, and it did on September 8th. Collapses like this are common during significant drops in summit lava lake.

The top two images, captured by HVO's K2 and HT web cameras, show the summit vent before the collapse. A yellow arrow points to the ledge, which was formed by layers of lava stacking up during repeated high lake levels. The lower webcam images were captured minutes after the collapse.

Mauna Ulu: The Growing Mountain. Hard to describe how terrifying it was to walk up to the edge of this giant crater, steam vents still swirling. 🌋🌋🌋
#volcano #volcanoesnationalpark #maunaulu #volcanos

Scenes from a prior eruption. Mauna Ulu erupted from 1969-1974 adding more than 150 acres to the island of Hawaii. This is what was left in her wake. It was eerie walking through what a little more than 40 years ago was active Pele lava flowing. And to know it could erupt from this spot again.

A little break after the Mauna Ulu Trail in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park 💪🏻 #break #hiking #maunaulu #hawaiivolcanoesnationalpark #bigislandofhawaii #hawaii 🌋🌋

11.30am: Chain of Craters Road and Mauna Ulu on the right, in a field of lava from the early 1970s.

The original Chain of Craters Road that was covered by pahoehoe lava during the 1969-1974 Kilauea eruption. 'Frozen waterfall' and southern flank fault scarp in the background. This is where I found heaps of Pele's Hair and reticulite.

Behind right is an aa type of lava (red colour). To the left is pahoehoe (darker black colour). Aa lava is the younger flow since it is overlying the pahoehoe flow; stratigraphic law of superposition). Exactly the same mineral composition; both are basalt lava. Aa is rough, jagged, blocky lava while pahoehoe is ropey and tends to be smoother (and easier to walk on!). Difference is due to viscosity of the lava. Flowing fast = pahoehoe; flowing slow = aa. This forms part of the 'frozen waterfall' on the southern flank of Kilauea; 'waterfall' formed by lava flowing over a large fault zone and thus a function of a change in topography. Mauna Ulu 1974 flow.
