Detailed Description

Pele's hair covers the roadside along Crater Rim Drive, next to the Halema‘uma‘u parking lot, in an area of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park closed to the public due to proximity to the summit lava lake. The Pele's hair (long strand of volcanic glass) is emitted from the lava lake and carried upwards by the rising gas plume, and then drifts downwind.
