Hilo

Our primary goal visiting the Island of Hawaii was to see the flowing lava of the Kīlauea volcano. We took a flight on Blue Hawaiian Helicopters. Despite rainy low clouds we did get a great look at the volcano. After the flight, we had the time to visit a farmer’s market and art gallery in Hilo.
