and my two sisters,
A volcano in your back yard!
By the way, Hawaii is the most southern point in the United States.
Cinder cones are tall with steep sides. They are made up of cinders, so even when they explode, they don’t do a lot of damage. They look a lot like a cone.

The other is the Hawaiian type, a shield volcano. It is called that because it looks like a warrior put his shield down. It is a gentle volcano and that’s why in Kilauea National Park on Hawaii, the park rangers will escort people close to the volcano when it erupts.(I took this picture from our house)
The most explosive and dangerous type of volcano is the Composite Volcano. These are like Mt. St. Helens in Washington state, and Mt. Fuji in Japan. Look at their steep sides. I’m glad my volcano is not dangerous like these.
Lava Tubes are really cool. They are tubes of air that occur as the lava flows! When they cool they look like a cave and you can explore them!
Here are some pictures of the lava tubes we’ve visited here on Hawaii.
Here is what they look like inside!—no Stalactites.
That’s my Uncle Jack and me!
Here we are as we enter the tube!
Caldera means a crater where the lava has flowed out and then the hole has collapsed. See the brown spot that is the Kileaua Caldera?
I’ll bet you didn’t know you could walk across a volcano. Well we do that a lot! We don’t go into the explosive caldera, but walk across the larger caldera. See the tiny dark circle inside the other—that’s the active crater. We are going to hike from the top green area to the active crater.
Hiking down onto the floor of the volcano.
Here we begin walking across the caldera.
We couldn’t climb some places because it was hazardous.
Finally we are at THE RIM of the crater. We have finished our hike!
2. But then the rain softens it and it begins to disintegrate and turn to a softer lava. It still is barren and appears dead, but soon a small plant will get a hold,
4. Before you know it a jungle is growing where only lava was.
It is lava that flows like a river and hardens just like it!
It is smooth and looks like frozen water.
It is a hard, crumbly, but crunchy sharp rock.
