Akaka Falls (Hilo, HI)
The second round at Hilo turned out to be very rewarding. I really wanted to see Akaka Falls and after I got a tour set up with a local I met an amazing couple from Washington state. It turns out that they are actually on the ship I’m working on and we’ve talked every day since. The tour guide was in the middle of taking them on their tour and they decided to join me on mine. They are amazing people who I feel blessed to have spent an afternoon with and I plan on having continued contact with in the future. Thanks Paul and Sharon!
