Today is the 28th anniversary of the world’s longest volcano eruption. You might not know her yet as Pele Goddess of Fire, but I assure you once you leave this park you will understand that Pele is the creator of this Big Island volcano, and she is adding new land continually since she began erupting on January 3, 1983.
There will be a celebration of activities all month long with guided hikes, lectures, and misc. activities at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. Over half of this park has great hiking, camping, and wilderness opportunities.
Kilauea Volcano Attracts All Kinds of Visitors
People travel all over the world to come to visit this magical place. Matter of fact, approximately 2.5 million people a year! Visitors entering the park, remember you are 4,000 foot above sea level. Bring your shoes and jacket it can get chilly.
At the Park
Once you enter the park you will immediately stop at the ranger station, pay your fee, and drive off. Not far after entering the park, off to the right hand side, is the Visitor Center. This is a great place to get a little more in-depth knowledge about the in and outs of the park, weather, and current lava flow updates from the on-duty Park Ranger.
Things To Do
The park has many things to do from Crater Rim drive, Chain of Craters road, steam vents, or just viewing the plants, the Jaggar Museum, or my favorite, Thurston Lava Tube. Even if you only have a few hours, Kilauea should not be missed. Let’s all celebrate January to the Kilauea Volcano! I know I will be there, will you?
