Kahauale‘a Cone and the Kahauale‘a flow...

Kahauale‘a Cone, shown here, has long been a small oasis in the midst of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō lava. New lava from the active Kahauale‘a flow has now surrounded the cone, which has also partly burned. Vent structures the episode 58, active from 2007 to 2011, are in the background just behind Kahauale‘a. Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō is out of sight to the right.
