Banana flow on Paliuli

This is a photo of several patches of lava in Banana flow on gentle slope above Paliiuli.

Wide view shows several patches of lava in Banana flow on gentle slope above Paliiuli (upper right), two sets of cascades down Paliuli (center), and front of flow on coastal flat fed by left-hand (west) cascade (foreground). Paliuli cascades are 12-15 m high.
