Hawaii "This lava hose remains the most insane thing I’ve ever witnessed in the natural world. The lava was flowing from a tube that dropped straight into the ocean, almost like a waterfall of fire. From the boat, you could feel the heat coming off of it, and the ocean water surrounding us was boiling.
When lava hits water, it causes an explosion, creating tiny specks of glass that glitter through the air. The entire scene didn’t seem like it could be real, but then again I don’t think I could’ve imagined something like this even in my wildest dreams.
Oh and that’s not fog surrounding the lava, it’s poisonous gas. Hikers have died trying to get too close, only to be engulfed in toxic fumes when the wind patterns changed. It’s crazy how something that could kill you instantly can be so beautiful."
