Kahauale‘a 2 flow travel path

Detailed Description

Much of the Kahauale‘a 2 flow has traveled over ‘A‘ā from Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō's early activity in the 1980s. This photo shows a lobe of the Kahauale‘a 2 flow advancing over a section of this older ‘A‘ā, burning moss and small trees that have grown on the ‘A‘ā clinker.
