Volcanoes National Park on Hawai’i, by Morgan

When we were in Hawai’i – the Big Island – we went to see the biggest volcano in the world called Mauna Loa which covers an area of about 2,035 square miles (5,271 square km). A ranger called Travis took us on a small private tour and he played a nose flute! He also told us about the goddess called Pele who is the goddess of volcanoes.

The most active is Kilauea which has been erupting since 1983! After we saw the volcanoes we went through a lava tube (a hole made by molten lava). Then me and dad walked through a black lava field. It was fun =) When we were there I thought it went on forever and it was like walking on the moon.

    Could you smell the fumes? Was is difficult walking on the lava? It was quite tricky when I tried. The lava cave must have been exciting.
