Visiting Kilauea Volcano in 1847
Posted: November 4, 2018 Filed under: Articles, Day in History, Teasers, tourism
This month in history — November 1847 — the Polynesian described a three-day journey to Kilauea Volcano’s summit, which meant a chilly, voggy thirty-mile horseback ride and an overnight stay through camping or living in a grass hut.
With other travelers, an editor of the Polynesian made the three-week trip: sailing from Honolulu, climbing up and down Kilauea, and sailing home for $50.
