On the big island in Hawaii, volcanic eruptions have changed the look of the land, but there is one spot that was changed in a unique fashion. In 1790, lava flows swept through this area near Pahoa. Unlike slow flows that burn everything in site, this flow was swift, and wrapped the trees without destroying them instantly. The trees eventually did die, leaving these lava forms (and many others) standing instead.
