    ... either! From the Falls it was into town to pay a visit to the local Growers Market, though I think they're a little cheeky calling themselves growers! More like Pickers. All the trees in all the parks and streets are, like Maui, heavy with fruit and it's all there for the picking, so the only time the locals buy fruit is when it's not in season or not locally grown.I had the sweetest little apple bananas about 8cm long, that were like sugar in a skin....so sweet, tender ...

    ... the smoking crater within it is about half a mile across. We watched a film of the 1959 eruption of Kilauea Iki Crater (apparently not big enough to be a caldera) and Iki means Little in Hawaiian. We took advantage of a 4mile guided hike into the crater to walk across it. First was a descent of 400ft to the crater floor, then a hike across the floor to the sink hole (point of eruption ) the eruption went 1900ft into the ...

Partly because it wasn't perfectly manicured and sculptured like many others, but instead was wild and tropical and felt completely natural in this lush and wet part of the island. It had everything from stunning waterfalls to the ...

    ... tube is the way the lava has flowed to the coast and threatened the town of Pahoa. The lava flowing to the coast creates new land while the one to Pahoa is destructive of human creation. Nature is smarter then we think.

    Upon exiting the tube we were immersed in a beautiful landscape of trees, fiddle head ferns and flowers. More photos, more beauty. We followed the path back to the bus. We were given an option ...

    ... story that we had not all heard of. It was actually the other side to the Captain Cook discovery story. I did not pay much attention however because I was looking out the window pondering my day. I was still so happy to be in Hawaii. However, this U.S. state did not remind me of the mainland that I know at all. It reminded me more of an island like Dominican Republic in terms of the modernization and style of architecture. I'm sure there is more to this island, especially ...
