Volcanoes National Park lava flow interior

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park stretches from over 13,600 feet above sea level to sea level. Most of the east side of Hawaii is over a fixed mantle "hot spot" - that has been in approximately the same place in the middle of the Pacific for over 70 million years. However, the earth's crust moves, and here it moves to the northwest, so the volcanic islands made by the hotspot have moved to the northwest as well. So, the oldest islands are progressively further to the northwest, and The Big Island is just the most recent island made by this fixed mantle hotspot.
