North of Kona

Napoopoo View

Napoopoo View

The Big Island is mostly covered by lava fields and volcanic ash. The beaches are no exception. Few of them are sandy. While visiting the petroglyphs, I spoke to a lady who said “I don’t do drugs, but there are some trippy looking trees up at the North end of this island. Just drive past Hawi until the road ends.” She forgot to mention the steep trail down to the beach.

  1. I like Napoopoo view. Great photo. It’s a surreal landscape with all that raw rock and gas. I bet you see some interesting shapes and experience contrasts of temperature, and landscape all the time.

    • In my mind the changes are organized by micro-climates with a mix of rain forest, arid, alpine, coastal foggy and so on.

  3. Nice set. To get that close to the petroglyphs must’ve been a treat.

    • There is a rail around the area, but some of the carvings are only a few feet away. I used a telephoto, too.
