This is an active place. An active volcano spewing lava and ash on
its way from the 4,000 summit of Kilauea until it enters the sea with a
steam crash of hot lava with the cool ocean waters. It relays the
history of the awesome islands of Hawaii in its most raw, natural
sense. Yes, it is beautiful. But it is a beauty showing the power of
nature to change landscape in powerful proportions. Hawaii Volcanoes
National Park represents a geography like no other in the United
States, with an active volcano, rain forests, desert, and the sea.
