View of the recent breakout at the end of Highway 130. This demonstrates how lava flows can seemingly flow uphill since the spot where I am standing is about five feet higher than the origin of the breakout. This is accomplished by the liquid lava pushing up the crust from below. A new breakout from the top would now be five feet higher than before. Jan 10, 2011
A little more light shows the new flow overriding the older flow from the early 1990's. The blue structure on the left is an above ground pool which serves as a rain catchment to water the vast garden which the owners had planted over the years. Jan 10, 2011
Lava broke out from under the crust late last night and quickly engulfed the residence at the end of Highway 130. Only the metal ribs which held up the roof can be seen near the right of the photo. Jan 18, 2011
This will be my last update to this photo journal.
