[VIDEO] Big Island, the orchid isle… but to me, the volcanic isle! Our visit to the Big Island was a big deal to me. I was determined to see flowing molten lava for the first time and it did not disappoint. The plan was to do a 3 day trip around the perimeter of the island and see as many of the sights as we could. We visited ancient Hawaiian sites, camped under the incredibly starry night sky, checked out huge waterfalls, and finally got to see what I had been dying to lay eyes on… lava. This short video chronicles the trip!
