In 2004 lava was flowing from Kilauea Volcano to the Pacific Ocean. I flew to Hawaii's Big Island, drove to the southeastern part of the island, and then hiked for a mile over the lava to the spot from which I could see the new flow. The white portions in the photo are the liquid lava. It generated a tremendous amount of steam and solidifies quickly as it hits the cold water. The steam could be seen for miles.
