Hawaii's Big Island

The main reason I wanted to go to the Big Island rather than any of the other Hawaiian islands was that the Big Island has an active volcano called Kilauea.   I spent most of a day driving around the volcano, and taking a helicopter trip over it.

The Big Island is also home to one of the least known and least heralded, but most significant geographical features in the United States - Ka Lae, the Southernmost Point of the USA.
