It's a great feeling to be in Akaka park, standing close to waterfalls, but it is also very nice to be above it and adore it from the air.
Directions: Akaka Falls
We were lucky to catch a rainbow at rainbow falls the day we went to hilo. In fact it was one of many we saw throughout the day. I even saw my first sighting of a double rainbow near a lava flow
