Embrace Life !! Walk Across Active Volcanoes in Hawaii.

If I'm correct the majority of people who read this blog are from affluent countries if not all from the United States. Sure the United States has areas that are questionable and dangerous, but hardly for most areas that are real dangers in terms of nature. Yes, there is Death Valley, and sure part of the North West is still considered to be uncharted, but how about walking near the lava of a live volcano?

Well you can live

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is one of the most exciting and unique parks in the entire world. It's an experience rich in geologic and natural Hawaiian history and culture. This expansive park is home of Pele, the Hawaiian fire goddess, as well as many native Hawaiian flora and fauna, wildlife and some of the world's most active volcanoes. The park encompasses several climatic regions that range from the cool snow-capped Mauna Loa to the desolate, sunbaked and barren lava covered shoreline at Kalapana.
