Volcanoes National Park questions

by aznaphrodite

A few questions about VNP...

1. This will probably sound weird but my husband wants to "poke a stick at the lava". Is this possible in Volcanoes National Park?

2. What would recommend we see within the park in one day? We are not hikers but can handle shorter, easy walks/hikes (less than a mile).

Thanks in advance!

Kapu, you would be pupule to poke a stick at the Goddess Pele. Many have done it, but it could bring bad luck. See story: http://www.naturalbornhikers.com/BananaLavaFlow/bananalavaflow.htm

The tourist center at the park has good info about where to go and what to see. The drive to the coast, where the lava rock poured over the road, is an interesting place. You can't drive the whole route anymore, and it is fun to walk along it for a while. Before reaching this place there is a place to stop and walk a short way to see fascinating petroglyphs in the rock.

Recovery

by Sharrie

As the steaming lava cools & descends into the sea, patches of forest recover. Black shoreline as such are commonly observed. A huge undersea volcano (called the Loihi) is presently building a future Hawaiian island.
