Lava tube


I heard about the lava tubes before going to visit the volcano, but I really didn't have any idea of what they were. Now I do! This is an empty lava tube - the hot, molten stuff was once rushing through these very walls. When the lava meets a dead end, the pressure builds up causing an eruption. It was a very interesting visit, to say the least.
