Hualalai volcano (upper right), the smallest of the young shield volcanoes on the island of Hawaii, rises above Kawaihae Bay in this aerial view from the north.  Hualalai shield volcano is perched on the western flank of the massive Mauna Loa shield volcano (upper left).  The latest eruption of Hualalai, during 1800-1801, produced lava flows from flank vents that reached the sea. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1987 (Smithsonian Institution).
