I cant even tell you how cool this is-Akaka Falls is a beautiful self-guided 0.4-mile loop meandering through lush tropical vegetation to scenic vista points overlooking Kahuna Falls and the free-falling Akaka Falls, which plunges 442 feet into a gorge.( can you tell I cut and pasted this )
BUT Now I know where the word gorgeous comes from!
Dad and I had an ahi burger at a cool cafe in Honomu, near the falls,Yum. The fish here tastes like chicken- only WAY better. There was free stuff there too- look!
OK- who needs SKATES in Hawaii?
The botanical garden was next on the tour- its close to Hilo....it was so cool- i felt like I was in the movie Avatar- but without the depression afterwards!
