Big Island 2008 - volcanochaser

This photo copied from the 2005 gallery to show a wider view of Royal Gardens as viewed from the coast. The white house is seen next to the street on the left. The end of Highway 130 is about one mile to the right of the photo. Royal Gardens Subdivision was isolated in the early 90's when the access road was covered by lava. A temporary access road was bulldozed through the lava, but it was again destroyed in the year 2000....a number of houses and large sections of the subdivision, including the area between the streets shown and the bottom of this photo have also been destroyed by repeated encroachments of lava.....Feb 11, 2005
