Where Land Meets Sea: 49 Hawaiian Lava Flow Photos


At Hawaii Volcanoes National Park you can view red hot lava up-close and personal. In the east rift zone of Kilauea alone lava flows at an average rate of 800-1,300 gallons per second and this has added over 500 aches of new land to the island since it first erupted in 1983.

These dare devils have stepped close enough to the action to feel the heat and here are 49 photos to prove it.
