Few People Realize There’s An Active Volcano Right Here In South Carolina
Volcanic activity and South Carolina? There must be some kind of mix up because those two terms aren’t commonly used in the same sentence. But the volcanic history of South Carolina seems to be very real, according to this report we downloaded from the National Park Service. Kings Mountain National Military Park in Blacksburg, South Carolina included an “arc” of active volcanoes that still exist and are completely accessible for public exploration.
But don’t worry, the volcanoes aren’t still “active” in the scientific sense, meaning you won’t have to worry about stepping in hot lava while you explore.
Have you been to this National Military Park in South Carolina? Did you know there used to be an active volcano at this location and it may have a dormant volcano arc?
