We spent today in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park around the massive Kilauea Caldera. Many of the roads and hiking trails were closed because of the government shutdown but the visitor center was open and was manned by volunteers who were handing out a map of where we could go that wasn’t closed.
We even got to see a pair of Ne Nes, the endangered Hawaiian state bird.
Some of the roads were closed because of the big eruption last year.
We ate dinner st Volcano House in the park overlooking the caldera.
