Galavanting around the Galapagos

A travel blog entry by kiri-ana

Unfortunately, I had some mix-ups booking my flight online with Emetebe (one of the airlines), and I ended ...

... we notice all the different lava formations that have occurred at different stages in the eruption process, such as lava tubes and 'Hornitos' which look like lava toilets! The flow known as 'pahoehoe' is used to describe the lava flow and surface character on the island. It conveys the shapes the lava takes as it flows fairly slowly, hardening into fans, swirls and protrusions of roughly rope-shaped strands. The lava flow is so recent, the rock so ...
