Hualalai Volcano Lava Tubes

Kona, Big Island, Hawaii, April 10 2016
Hualalai is a dormant volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. The last time it erupted was in 1801, and it could erupt again. Near the Kona airport is a lava tube that was formed during that eruption. lava tubes are created when very fluid lava forms an insulating crust on top of the flow. This keeps the lava from cooling quickly, and therefore allows it flow great distances. This particular lava tube is quite large and is very easy to access.
