Volcanoes National Park is located on the Big Island in Hawaii. It's a really educational and fun experience. You can learn all about volcanoes and the birth of the Hawaiian Islands. At the ranger station, they have a presentation every so often throughout the day from a ranger who discusses volcanoes and what's currently happening to the active Volcano at the park. Information boards also recommend sites to see depending on the time you have. When there is active lava flow, ranger's give you information on where it's at and if tourist are able to see it up close. When we went, the active lava was in a dangerous place for tourist to visit. That was a bummer; I really wanted to see hot lava! Another good thing about visiting the Ranger station first is that they tell you which sites to stay in your car if you are pregnant, a child, or an older person because of the dangers from breathing in the high sulfur from the active volcano. So, when I went, I was pregnant. Needless to say, I didn't get to see much. I did, however, get to go through the lava tube. It is really neat and a must see!
