The Pu‘u Haukea scoria cone is one of many recent cones that have formed near the Mauna Kea summit. Mauna Loa is in the background with unvegetated lava flows visible down its flanks. Nearly the entire Mauna Loa surface seen here consists of lava flows erupted during the past 4,000 years. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1987 (Smithsonian Institution).
