2009.08.04 Tuesday - Hawaii

Packin up, leaving to Hilo on the main island. The plane we flew on was a tiny one. It had dual propellers and seated maybe 40 people.

Hilo is mostly tropical, so its always on the verge of raining. The place we were staying was much more spacious, but not as fancy. No AC... what...

We got settled, grabbed a quick lunch, then headed to Saddle Road. It's very hilly and goes pretty high in elevation. Before I knew it, we were above all the tropical clouds and we almost to the top of the volcano. The air is much thinner up here.

Then we drove back and checked out some caves, a waterfall, and some hot natural pools.

Back home, then sleep.
