On July 29, 2010, we flew from Oahu to the Big Island, and we we drove to our first hotel in Volcano via the southern route of the island. Along the way, we decided to take a detour so that we could see the southern most point of the island, which is also the southern most point of the United States.
Along the detour, we passed Old Kamoa Wind Farm.
We also passed some farms. We got the feeling that a lot of cars didn't pass through there often because all of the animals seemed very interested in us.
We also passed this, which reminded us of the X-Files.
And here is the South Point. People actually jump off of that cliff and then climb up a thin ladder, which I personally think is insane.
From there, were drove to a Punalu'u Beach, a black sand beach. The sand is black because it is made from crushed up volcanic rocks.
