Volcano Helicopter tour in Hilo, Hawaii by DonnaMoore

Volcano Helicopter tour in Hilo, Hawaii by 

We are on a helicopter tour that took us over the vent of the Kilauea Volcano System to view the volcanic activity. This is a view of the lava streaming directly into the ocean. The tour continues over the homes that were in the path of the latest lava flow from January. People are already building homes back in this area…

This is a photo of the steam as the lava flows into the ocean….

A long distance photo of the width of the path that the lava took….

    Fantastic image Donna. Looks too dangerous to be even thinking of building nearby :)

  • I know…..But, it is still their land and they knew that when they bought it.

    This is fantastic, Donna! I like all the shots on the side, too. How was the helicopter ride?

  • It was really exciting…Dan and I got a little sick to our stomachs when we where circling around the shore area. I still managed to get some shots. I added the other photos, so you could get an idea of what we where seeing.

    Great shot Donna……………..you got the same shots I did, but were smart enough to keep the doors on the Copter, lol. That was too scary! ;-))

    SUPER stunning!!

  • This was outstanding. Never thought we would get this close to a active volcano and I had never been in a helicopter before either. Two things off my bucket list….:))
