Kamokuna Ocean Lava Entry - Big Island - Hawaii — Judy H McPhee

While visiting the Big Island of Hawaii, we went on a 8 mile bike ride to see the lava flow of Halemaumau vent at Kilauea.  The flow comes out of a lava tube and enters the ocean a few feet above sea level - each time is different.  At times the lava will break out on the surface and flow for a short or long distance, giving the onlooker an experience of a 'once in a life time' view and  while watching this amazing force of nature take it course, creating new land.   On February 2, 2017 a large part of the newly formed land collapsed into the ocean.
