Air Photos #10 and #11: This is a view of the Lihue Depression which saw some of the greatest infilling by younger lavas following the eastern collapse of the island. One of the largest centers of activity was Kilohana lava shield, which can be seen at the left of these pictures in the middle distance. The town in the foreground is Wailua.
