Halema`uma`u Crater in Kilauea Caldera
Kilauea is regarded as one of the world's most active volcanoes with many eruptions in recorded history. There have been more than 30 eruptions since 1950. A caldera is a crater formed by collapse of the central part of a volcano.
Halema`uma`u Crater is famous in Hawaiian tradition as the place where Kamapua`a, a suitor of Pele the volcano goddess, built a fern house to keep Pele from escaping and erupting...without success as it turns out.
