Note: Be sure you have a good guidebook and map for finding your way around the island. There are almost NO signs to attractions to help you know where to turn. Strict laws prohibit commercial signs except on your own property and then they can be no larger than 3 by 5 feet. Our favorite guidebook is Hawaii, The Big Island Revealed by Andrew Doughty.
For my report on the Kona side of Hawaii's Big Island go to my May 13, 2013 post.
