Hualalai is an active volcano in Hawaiian volcanoes national park. It is 8271 feet high and is the third largest and third most active shield volcano on the island, behind Kilauea and Mauna loa. Well worth visiting.

Not really sure what is going on here but most of the reviews and pictures are from Volcano national park, on the other side of the island.
