Where the Lava Created New Land in Hawaii

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

There are plenty more photographs and close-up shots of the lava in my personal blog today of the new land formed in Hawaii. Even though the eruptions were in the spring, there are spots where the lava is still hot to the touch. Most people see this from either the air or by sea, but you can get there by land, too.

I know this might not interest many of you, but for those of you who love rocks like I do, you will appreciate this. In my blog I talk about what happens if you remove a lava rock from Pele's domain. You can read a little bit of history about hot spots and teconic plates and forming of the islands, too. It's all there in my personal blog today at this link: The Newest Land in the World is in Hawaii.

Hi Elizabeth- I love this story of the lava formations. I wonder if the couple with the baby knew of Pele. This is like Robert the Doll in Key West. You are not supposed to take a photo of it or you will have bad things happen to you.

Kathy Streib If they didn't know of Pele, they do now. LOL. They were very eager to dispose of the lava afterwards. And although I have been to Key West, I did not encounter Robert the Doll. Gosh, I hope I didn't take a picture of it and I don't remember.

Hi Elizabeth: Interesting colors in that new lava. As to the "bad luck" stories, it started out that the visitors bureau felt tourists should leave lava alone and, the story goes, they started that tale.  'Lo and behold, lava was mailed back in ever increasing numbers still to this day, so there may be something to the tale.Aloha, Hella

Hella M. Rothwell, Broker/Realtor® I don't buy that tourist bureau story. Why should the tourist bureau give a crap if people take home small pieces of lava as souvenirs? I did take a large boulder of lava to my garden at our house in Kona. I hear it's only when you take it off the island you get into trouble.

Elizabeth, I think it would be fun to see this lava, not something you would see in CO.

Beautiful colors in that lava rock, Elizabeth. Although, doubt I'd want to take any home. When we visited Waikoloa Village, we couldn't believe the piles of lava rock...

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD When I was house hunting with Hella on this island, we considered a home in Waikoloa Village. But it was too far the ocean and I would have felt isolated in there. Surely you spotted lava along the way from the airport? It reminds me of baked goods. Brownies. Sometimes brown sugar. Cookie dough. Burned rye bread.
