Pāhoehoe - How many of you are familiar with this word?

Unless you live on the Big Island of Hawaii, or visited here lately, you probably have no idea what I am talking about. None of the other islands have active volcano's, so it's a word that is used mainly here on the Big Island. 

Here is Wikipedia's defenition, (Funny, "Wiki" (pronounced [ˈwiti] or [ˈviti]) is a Hawaiian word meaning "fast" or "quick") 

Pāhoehoe:  (/pəˈh.ˈh./; from Hawaiian [paːˈhoweˈhowe],[8] meaning "smooth, unbroken lava"), also spelled pahoehoe, is basaltic lava that has a smooth, billowy, undulating, or ropy surface. These surface features are due to the movement of very fluid lava under a congealing surface crust. The Hawaiian word was introduced as a technical term in geology by Clarence Dutton.

Maybe here?

 

But if you live here, this is where you most likely want to see it

Lance-So it's used as a building material for things like fencing, maybe even patios, etc? Good recycle concept.
