Our longest and most scenic trip of 2016 was to Hawaii’s Big Island and Maui in which are located Hawaii’s two national parks, Hawaii Volcanoes and Haleakala, respectively. Hawaii ranks 47th among the states in land area, but takes a back seat to none in its diversity of scenery and natural beauty. Included in the accompanying images are remnants of Hawaii’s history, lovely beach scenes, waves crashing onto rocks, waterfalls, imposing overlooks, magnificent sunrises and sunsets, fields created from lava flows and the active volcano of Kilauea.
