October 12th to 25th 2017
The main reason for my visit to Hawaii was to see a Lava Lake and the associated Lava fields.
I spent half of my time on Big Island (Hawaii) viewing the Kilauea Caldera in Volcanoes National Park walking a number of the Trails in the park many through Rain Forests. I took a helicopter flight over the Kilaauea Volcanic System and walked in other areas of this island.
The second half of my visit was to Kauai the most northerly island and called the 'Green Island'. One area in the north of the island is claimed to be the wettest place on earth. Here I made several walks viewing the amazing scenery and plant life. Some of the walking was hard due to the track surface being rough and very wet.
The weather was as expected rather wet but warm.
