The next day we said goodbye to Kona and packed the SUV up for the trip to Volcano Village. Part of our trip involved a detour directly south on the South Point Road to the southernmost point in the U.S. This is an isolated spot but well worth a visit just to see all the types of people who trek down here to visit or even live.
