Maui's last volcanic eruption was around 1790. The vent that most of this lava came from is called "Kalua o Lapa" and it is accessible via a faint trail that begins near the "end of the road" at La Perouse Bay. These are a handful of images from a New Year's Eve hike. Weather conditions were suitably bleak and in keeping with the desolate landscape. Although, as you can see there are always a few tenacious plants striking a foothold.
