Fun Visit to the Steam Vents in Hawaii

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

People of all ages can visit the steam vents at Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. It's got the typical raised deck walkways with railings to protect you from falling into the steam vents. There is a lot to see along the way, too. From the tall grasses with shallow root systems to the wildflowers, to the illustrated billboards of people falling into the steam vents.

The day I was there was the first day of the Trump government shutdown. And the park was packed. Although partially closed, Volcano House was open and a few attractions. It was free, too, because there were no employees at the gate to collect entrance fees.

You can read more in my personal blog today and see a ton of photos at this link: Steam Vents at Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park.

I have never heard of this before.  I know about Old Faithful and the vents around it.

That's a really awesome picture, Elizabeth.  The island of Hawaii is a place that simply feels so alive, like it is still going through the process of being born.

Elizabeth- I am learning so much through your sightseeing trips!!! The story of O'Hia, Pele, and Lehua was kind of sad.   But I also loved your observation of how something so beautiful and fragile as that orchid could survive such harsh conditions. Many people are like that!!!

Myrl Jeffcoat As the youngest island, the island of Hawai'i is still being born. I had an agent in Sacramento ask me the other day if Honolulu was an island and he had no idea where Big Island is nor even that Big Island is the nickname for the island of Hawai'i.

Joan Cox Well, probably NOT good that it was free only due to the Trump government shutdown.

Although all national parks are free to a person over 62 who has the national park pass. Do you have yours?
