Our THIRD day on the Big Island saw us taking a helicopter tour. Geographically, Hawai’i is an insanely diverse place. Alan really knows a lot more about this than I do, but the island rests above a hot spot in the ocean, and the land is still growing. On the west side, you see white sand beaches, and on the east, it’s all lava cliffs, as it’s the newer side of the island. It’ll probably keep growing too. Nature is crazy and amazing, right?
