Evan’s work often brings him to the big island of Hawaii. The Big Island is home to two of the world’s largest telescopes, the Keck telescopes. I know. What a pain, right? Having to travel to Hawaii on business. Life sure is hard.
A few months ago, I tagged along for the first time. I’d been to Maui over 15 years ago but never to the Big Island. A rainbow—double-rainbow even, although you can barely see the second one—greeted us the day we arrived.
The next morning, we found a friend.
Isn’t she cute? (I’m going to assume it’s a she.)
On a kayaking trip, we found a small group of dolphins. Check out the cute dolphin snouts poking out of the water.
I’ve had lots of snow cones, but this was the largest snow cone I’d ever had in my life. It was gargantuan! Bigger than our heads! Passion fruit, guava, and mango. Yum.
The volcano is active, and at night we walked down a trail just outside of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to look at the lava, which wasn’t visible during the daytime.
