you can get real close to the green sea turtles ...but don't touch!

me in front of the Corsair's propeller
thousands of fish hang out here
(I'm really not kidding!)
the perfect experience for a diver

Hawaii (the big island):

the big island still has active volcanoes
they are not currently erupting in the traditional sense, but lava constantly oozes from various points in Kilauea's East Rift Zone
the lava creates "fingers" as it cuts through the rain forrest
the current eruption has created over a quarter mile of new land
eventually, the lava rock gets broken down resulting in beautiful black sand beaches along the shores
the Kilauea Caldera is one of Volcanoes National Park's main attractions
inside is the Halema'uma'u Crater, which is also still active
Onomea Bay
a small waterfall cuts through some bamboo trees near Piihonua...
...right near by isAkaka Falls, which is over 400 ft high, and Kahuna Falls
Rainbow falls in Hilo
the top of Rainbow falls
the river flowing away from Rainbow Falls
petroglyphs were carved by early Hawaiians into lava rock on the Kona coast
South Point, although not much to look at, is the southern most point in the United States (if you travel directly south from this point, the first land you'd reach would be Antarctica)
the sculpted coastline near South Point

Kauai:

Kee Beach marks the start of Kauai's Na Pali Coast
Julie relaxes in the afternoon shadows cast by the palm trees
hiking the coast provides breathtaking views
green cliffs drop into the ocean
there is little land in between the path and the sea
looking down on Hanakapiai Beach
the Hanakapiai stream meets the ocean at this beach
Honopu valley is close to the other end of the Na Pali Coast (visible from the lookout at the end of the Waimea Canyon drive)
Waimea Canyon is Kauai's answer to the Grand Canyon
this view was taken from the northern end, looking back toward the ocean
bridge for an old water irrigation system down in the Waimea Canyon area
finding ourselves in a barron field of Hawaii's famous red dirt while off-roading near the canyon (don't tell the rental car company)
we also took the truck onto Lydgate Beach
and deep into the rain forrests to get up-close looks at Kauai's many beautiful waterfalls that would otherwise have been unaccessable
