Tradewinds Vacations Invites You To Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Recent events which have taken place at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park have once again thrust this stunning national park into the spotlight. An eruption of the Kamoamoa Fissure has made this park the place to be for viewing a live and active volcano. Although the lava stopped flowing on March 9th, the chance that it may happen again is always a possibility. In addition, the volcano is still showing some activity and causing some closures to avoid visitors getting too close.
The two remaining closures are the Napau Trail and the Naulu Trail. However, all other parts of the park are open and ready for viewing this amazing event. In addition, if you would like to see the volcano from afar, you can look at the nps website where they have added a live webcam of the area allowing visitors to see the volcanic activity from the comfort of their own homes.
