Molly Blue 28

By cloudmonet
And Molly and company have finally reached the end of the lava flow. Does this count as a cliffhanger? I guess a 45 degree slope isn't exactly a cliff!

This lava flow is not as ancient as I thought. It buried a road ! I recall a program on Kilaeaea where recent lava flows cut off a once thriving town and now only one person lives there, the rest having given up and moved away.

On Hawaii, any lava flow more than a few decades old pretty much reverts to jungle. A decades old Hawaiian lava flow looks less fresh than an Oregon lava flow thousands of years old! It's hard to tell just by looking if you don't consider the climate.

Mr. Charles must've had a time of it making his way to the village on foot. Those lava flows will chew your shoes up in no time.

Mr. Charles walked to Kasima by a much easier route, entirely on the Hanatoa side of the lava flow, that passed through several other villages. Molly took him back through the jungle on the opposite side of the lava flow, and over the flow itself, to avoid being delayed by more gossip with her many friends and fans, because they were in a hurry. See pages 19-20.

Molly didn't think the imps would dare to delay her.

But there's still the question of how Molly expected to lead Mr. Charles over the lava flow had they not encountered a rideable giant lizard. I suspect she might have taken a slightly different route in that event, following the jungle all the way to the coast and just climbing over the flow at the easiest place. There's also the distinction between pahoehoe (smooth) and aa (blocky and bouldery) lava flows. This one has aa blocks on the edge, and a nice pahoehoe crust on much of the top— sorta convenient, but I have seen plenty of flows like this.

It is if you're the one on the lizard, at least the guy in the back seat.
