The Floral Adventures of Akaka Falls on Big Island

After our exhilerating ziplining adventure on Labor Day, we decided to visit Akaka Falls. I suppose it's possible that trip could have been the plan all along but I only first heard of it after the 8 ziplines. Vika said she and Josh missed the falls during their last trip here because it was closed. I rarely turn down an opportunity to visit a state park, even those I've seen before because you always see something new.

Akaka Falls is one of those must-see tourist attractions on Big Island. It features an optional loop trip to see two big waterfalls and a few smaller waterfalls, while you're climbing and ascending stairs, strolling along a path. You hear all sorts of exotic bird mating calls. Your eyes can't possibly asborb all that you see.

However, you can read more and see a lot more photographs at this link in my personal blog today: Photos of Flowers and Ferns at Akaka Falls in Honomu.

Do Not Wait Forever to Try Ziplining

There seemed to always be some sort of reason why I could not go ziplining in the past. Although, whenever I go on vacation, the ziplining places seem to be everywhere. Part of the reason I'd never gone ziplining before was finding a person to do… more

Have You Ever Considered Refrigerating Bananas?

Absolutely cannot believe how much money I spent at the grocery store in Kona last Saturday. More than $500. But then I don't go grocery shopping in Sacramento, so I'm not really aware of how much things cost. Like, I would be a lousy contestant on… more
Busiest Sacramento Tourist Spots Often Quiet on Fourth of July
