Kilauea... is one of the world's most active and accessible volcanoes. Kilauea stands 4090 feet in elevation. Its current eruption is taking place on its flank some 7 miles southeast and down rift at the Pu'u O'o vent. The Pu'u O'o- Kupaianaha eruption has been going on continuously since 3 January 1983. Early in the eruption there were high lava fountains, but now since there is a clear conduit from the summit magma chamber of Kilauea to Pu'u O'o, the lava is now bubbling out of the vent and travelling silently towards the sea. As of 3rd May 2002 lava is now pouring out of the vents below Pu'u O'o and the rootless shield area.

    Seeing the lava reach the ocean is a goal of mine, too - I love the Big Island!

    Great stuff! Since my daughter will be on her Honeymoon on the Big Island, I'm making her copies of all your pages. Wonderful. Thanks.

    Well, there are those that a tour that included getting close to the lava might not appeal. Good to know we are both not in that category. I saw so little of the magic of Hawaii it seems..
