My First Helicopter Ride Was Amazing
So many good sights. Lots of pictures & a few videos (start HERE on the flickr).
Early morning (0730) showed us the dawn over the Big Island mountains. We headed towards the sun across the middle of the island to reach Volcanoes National Park. Steam vents everywhere and perfect overcast conditions to find some hot lava.
From there we go up the East coast through Hilo and into Waipi'o Valley. So many waterfalls all over this side of the island.
A great overview of the island. Funny & informative pilot (Koji) and great customer service (Paradise Helicopters).
