Rainbow Falls | Hilo, Hawaii

Still going through images from my recent trip/workshop to the Big Island of Hawaii. That place has a part of my heart and soul, that's for sure. 

Rainbow Falls is located on the southeast part of the island just down the road in Hilo on the Wailuku River. If you visit at just the right time (usually around 10am on a clear day, you'll usually see a huge rainbow across the entire scene. One of these days I hope to see it myself :-). This scene will have to do for now.

Hawaii Region

Hawaii is an archipelago of over nineteen distinct volcanic islands located over a geological “hot spot” in the Central Pacific. There are eight major islands, six of which are open to tourism. The natural beauty of the islands continues to be one of Hawaii’s greatest assets. Honolulu is the state’s capital, largest city, and cultural hub.

Check out the tallest palm trees in the world high in the Colombian Andes.

High in the Colombian Andes, you will find the tallest palm trees in the world. Here is Matt Sampson with a look at Los Nevados National Park.

Malo lava fa'afetai for these most important and massively informational series, I thoroughly appreciate the use of these set of videos to inform and empower members of the greater public...especially for the people of these lands, our Hawaiian community.

As a non-Hawaiian settler of Samoan descent, post illegal-statehood, I know even more the role I must play in this period of transition from hewa to pono. So long as I'm blessed to call these here Pae ʻĀina home, I am responsible for this blessed and shared burden to share the information that I've gained with as many people possible.

I hope that in doing so, with my deep heartfelt intentions and intellectual abilities, that one day my descendants can go on living in this place that they may love and can call home with no sense of guilt, shame, or hurt for having done nothing or not enough in the call to right the wrongs of the past.

Absolutely love this 'hole in the wall' pizzeria personal favorites are the Amina's sandwich Special and any/all calzones haha! Aside from Bostons, Amina's is the best on island for fresh pizza! Service is always with a friendly smile and gracious attitude. I haven't really had issues with the parking, there are usually a few stalls open in the back of the place. Enjoy!
