... we found the beach. It seems as if this is always the case here on the Big Island. Signs and directions somehow don't seem to work all that well. In any case, we took the public access path to the beach, settled in and put on our snorkeling gear and entered the water. Water here on the Big Island is rougher than I am used to...I almost get knocked over by the waves if I am not careful. Kara and I started swimming around but the water was very cloudy and no ...

We made several stops along the way at craters, lava fields and trailheads. This is where it feels like you're on the moon. The lava is very uneven and jagged in ...
... will now be including more pickles into my dishes because this hash was delicious.
Now- onto the park.
We packed peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the yeti and headed into the park. We had about 14 miles of hiking planned out for the day but weren't sure if the weather was going to be a factor. So far, the skies were holding up so we kept on with our plan.
Our first stop was the Kilauea Iki Trail; this route starts with 3 miles along ...
