A lava bolt!!! A lightning bolt shaped skylight gave us a peek at the immense river of lava flowing beneath. Skylights, openings in the roof of lava tubes, are amazing!

The cooling surface of a finger of pahoehoe creates an amazing texture on the center of the flow and along its edges.

The textures created by lava are nothing short of AMAZING… This wrinkled surface is actually the surface of a moving river of lava… and the blue tones are from the low level of ambient light. So beautiful!!! Mahalo ke Akua!!!
