This is the reason why we used Hilo airport even though our hotel was the other side of the island. Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. It was not a great weather, but it seems this side(Hilo side) of the island is usually not sunny as the other side(Kona side).
This is a HUGE park, so basically we drove all around. First point, we stopped at Jaggar Museum where we could also see the Volcano steam.
It was freezing there!!!
Then we went to Lava Tube, which we walk into the rain forest to get to this cave made by lava.
It was SPOOKY! Haha.
Then we drove around the whole park, stopped here n there, and took some pics.
It wasn’t a great day, but we could still see this huge, wild, historic, amazing, great nature. The view from the ocean side of the park was so amazing… It was like a scene from some movies, or we time-tripped to long, long, long time ago…
We had only 3 days on this island… It’s still in same Hawaii islands, but this Hawaii Island had a totally difference face compare to Oahu. We enjoyed 120%, n also learned how great this planet is…
By the time we got to the airport, kids were exhausted…
We definitely wanna come back to this island. I strongly recommend to you all for the family vacation. I mean Oahu is fun, but the Big Island… Hawaii Island is a wonderful place for families to spend their quality time!
This is the end of our vacation to the Big Island 2010, but it’s definitely… to be continued!
