Caption

Pahoehoe lava. Molten pahoehoe lava breaking through its outer crust. This thick lava with a ropey texture can flow at speeds of up to 50 kilometres per hour. Pahoehoe is a basaltic lava with a low melting point. The crust insulates the lava keeping it molten and able to travel great distances from its origin.
