The Big Island of Hawaii is larger than the seven other islands combined. Driving from historical site to natural wonder takes time along the curve hugging roads. An alternate - helicopter!
Last fall, hubby and Andrew splurged on a helicopter ride from the Hilo airport.
The helo flies south ....
.... to check out Madame Pele in the Kilauea Volcano!
Lava is flowing from the Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō–Kupaianaha vent along the eastern rift.
The helo also gives a great view of the waterfalls!
Heading back to the airport, the helo flies over the Hilo harbor with two cruise ships in port. Have you flown in a helicopter?
