Aloha Friday Photo: Oozing pahoehoe lava

Today’s amazing photo was supplied by Jack Boeggeman. Jack took this lava photo during his Christmas vacation to Hawaii.

What a great shot! It appears that Jack was able to get very close to the lava flow — probably close enough to feel the radiating heat.

Jack’s photo is of pahoehoe lava, which is the smooth, slow-moving lava. Use this link for descriptions of the two major types of lava you’ll see in Hawaii.

Mahalo nui loa to Jack Boeggeman for sharing his photo with us for Aloha Friday.
