[edit] Location

On a pahoehoe lava flow (1850s?) in the Saddle between Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. Close to the margin of a more recent 'a'a lava flow (1936?). A little way off the road to the Mauna Loa Observatory.

No plans. Spontaneity rules.

[edit] Expedition

Drove up the Mauna Loa road from the Saddle highway and broke out of the mist coming up from the windward side. After parking at a turnout, took a short stroll across the lava. Glad it was a pahoehoe flow as walking over an 'a'a flow would have been less fun. Lots of berries on the 'ohelo bushes. Nice views of Mauna Kea.
