We made a trip on our 'round the island' drive to the Hilo Area. It's not really representative of the entire area, since we only really drove through Hilo. OK, after 6 hours in the car, we were pooped out. Can ya blame us??
These Banyan Trees are not native...but these particular trees were planted by famous people back in the 30's...like Amelia Earhart.
We went to the famous Rainbow Falls.....OK, it was cool, but it was in a residential area and there were lots of bugs. I wasn't too impressed.
We arrived back at Rich and Aarah's to find a freakin' CENTIPEDE!
This one was dying...they get the house sprayed on a regular basis, so the critters are all dying when we actually see them...he's pretty ugly. If he bites you, it will hurt like hell. Thankfully, we didn't get bit...argh!
