 Product Description

HAWAII VOLCONOES NATIONAL PARK   After an enormous effort to createFranko’s Map Hawaii National Park Guide Map, which included unique and interesting new mapping technology, tons of research, and hiking and exploring the miles and miles of trails and roads of the park, it is at last done!  I have come to love the Big Island for many reasons, but Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is the number one reason.  It is so-o-o-o-o incredible!  Only Yellowstone National Park is equally dynamic.  To see just the Kilauea Caldera is amazing, but the whole park is so extraordinary that words struggle to do it justice. Franko’s Hawaii National Park Guide Maprelies on exactly 5,999 words, 19 great photos, lots of illustrations, and marvelous new mapping techniques to present this wonderful National Park for your edification and enjoyment.  As THE map maker, it is hard to be pleased with my own work.  But Oh, my Goodness!  I LOVE this map.     
As I study and reviewFranko’s Hawaii National Park Guide MapI am reminded just how impressive this place is.  I recall walking out to the edge of Halemaumau Crater at 7:00am, all alone on a typically cool morning.  I watched the steam spewing from all kinds of holes and fissures and then went to the edge of the crater and peered in.  I had been there several times before, but this time I was trying to think of how to describe it on a map.  Just a few days before I had been to Pearl Harbor and the Aloha Stadium on Oahu.  On Franko’s Map of Pearl Harbor I actually drew an aerial view of Aloha Stadium on the map (it is right next to Pearl Harbor).  As I looked into Halemaumau, the legendary home of Pele, Goddess of Fire, I wondered how much bigger is this crater than Aloha Stadium.  When I got home to my map making I took my Aloha Stadium image and scaled it next to Halemaumau Crater, and then copied and pasted it over and over to see how many Aloha Stadiums would fit into the crater.  The answer was 15!  Halemaumau is a huge crater.  But wait, the Halemaumau Crater is a relatively small thing that sits within a much larger crater called the Kilauea Caldera.  This is the most famous feature of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.  So I estimated how many Aloha Stadiums would fit inside the Kilauea Caldera as well.  The answer is 150.  This tidbit of interesting information is on the map.
