  • Zipline Thrills: Screaming Like a Rock Star in Hawaii

    Zipline tour on MauiFor some people I know, hiking the Kalalau Trail on Kauai makes them break into a sweat.  Others I know won't even think about driving the famous road to Hana.  For those people, I do not recommend ziplining. But, if you have a general respect for high places, like I do, and you like speed, like I do, then, you'll love ziplining. It's still a relatively new adventure in Hawaii. In fact, you won't even find ziplining adventures on all the islands. Read More

It's expected the lens will be covered for the duration of the rennovation--upwards of two years--and will be complete well in advance of the the Kilauea Lighthouse's 100th anniversary on May 1, 2013. We'll bring you details of the restoration, as well as, stories and facts about the lighthouse throughout the process. Read More
  • Dancing Red Tailed Tropicbirds

    At Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, we (or, at least I), call these seabirds, “Valentine’s Birds.” For two reasons: 1) They arrive at the refuge in early February, around Valentine’s Day, every year; and 2) Their tail feathers and bill are painted a striking red. Read More
