Putting it in Perspective

Putting it in perspective. I like this aerial taken from north of the tip of Big Island looking back south onto Kohala. It shows clearly the topography of the area and why there is no connection of the road between Pololu Valley in Kohala and Waipio Valley in Hamakaua. All the deep valleys and soaring cliffs in between are clear. You can hike from one to the other in both directions but that's for serious and experienced hikers only.

Is this Hawaii?

Travel the world in a day in Hawaii. Is this the Gobi Desert? No. It's Haleakala. This is why I love Hawaii. In a couple of hours you can travel from oceans to jungles to deserts to great plains to alpine peaks to volcanoes to historic plantation camps and pulsing metropolis. And, there is a place for everyone in every place. I can help you find yours if you like. photo rob de camp

Tide Pools on the North Tip

North Kohala Tide Pools. These cliffs and lava flats stretch for quite a way with beautiful views of Maui beyond. Access is through rolling green agricultural pasture and forest, with clean air sweet with the scent of mollases grass. Winter waters pound these cliffs and whales breach and birth here. Just a tiny example of what 'is' Kohala. It's not the resort. It's not sandy beaches and swaying palms. It's rugged and raw. Birthplace of king Kamehameha. His strength and tenacity is reflected in these surroundings. Larger than life. Self assured. Rich in spirit. Creative.

Hawaii Caving Goes Down The Tubes

The Big Island is, well, BIG. She has many secrets; especially below ground. She has beaches, mountains, jungles, deserts, plains, forests, and massive escarpments. You could look for years and not find a fraction of what Big Island has hidden, above and below ground. Here is some of the magesty of the south side. Lava tubes are extensive, running dozens of miles from Kiluea to Kalapana. An experienced guide is recommended. Lava shelfs at the ocean's edge are prone to collaps so staying well back from the edge is a safety imperative. these areas are wild and exceptionally beautiful. They are not for the faint of heart.
