The Royal Gardens subdivision is completely surrounded and is mostly covered by lava flows. With an hour or so of walking from the nearest road, one can reach the remaining section of Royal Gardens that so far has escaped the flowing lava. To date no one has been killed or seriously injured in the subdivision from flowing lava. John and Mary Wilson and Don Coons visited Royal Gardens on 15 January 2006.
The pahoehoe lava field is like a giant sculpture resting beside the ocean waiting to be appreciated by those who can.
