OUR LAST DAYS
ON THE BIG ISLAND

We drove hundreds of miles in the matter of days. The curving roads took us everywhere, from the southernmost point to the northern tip. Along the way we discovered waterfalls, valleys and … lots of spiders.

We started our day very early – and hopped the fence before Akaka waterfalls opened to get a glimpse of it in the morning light. It was a rush through the cemented pathways to the view, but it was stunning once we got there. The caretaker didn’t care one bit when he found us leaving!

Hawai’i island is such a varied place. It has a lush ruggedness about it. Cultivated, yet wild. You can plan a cemetery in neat little rows…but no matter what you do, the spiders will come.
