Hawaii....The Big Island! August 2009

We saw it All...
Legends say that the Big Island of Hawaii is the home of Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of Fire.

In front of the volcanoe Mauna kea
The Volcano Hualalai

The Volcano Mauna Loa(long)...if you look real close
you can see a face of a lady in the mountain.

Above the Clouds....btwn the volcanoes...

Rain forest....lava flow covered trees which are now just hollow inside.
Big WAVES...yes that's Steve over there!
Our Hotel View...

Lava crashing into the Ocean makes this smoke rise high!

Once the ocean floor sits all this lava, a 1/4 of a mile
walk to the Ocean.....

...and black sand beaches!
