Lava Butte is a geologically young cinder cone at the north end of a series of vents radiating from Newberry Volcano. The eruption that formed the cinder cone also issued an extensive aa lava flow, seen here in the foreground near its southeast margin. Edi and Berti went exploring and made friends with a couple of the natives.

The gash in the right center of the image results from insufficient overlap in the original photos because I accidentally kicked the tripod and failed to properly reset it. I may be able to Photoshop a fix, but that'll have to wait for a day when I have more time.

    Geez, for a language with just 14 letters they sure do have a lot of nuances. ;-)

    Ron, that's ʻaʻā (from the Polynesian origin of the word) The macron (long vowel sound) just means that the second ah(as a is pronounced in Hawaiian) is drawn out, as in aah, and is pronounced with a slight emphasis.
