I will take you to see some beautiful waterfalls and some great views of the ocean.
I will also take you to Kaumana Cave so you can see what a lava tube looks like.
We will then drive up what is called the Saddle Road where we climb to an elevation of 6000 feet with Mauna Loa on one side and Mauna Kea on the other our two volcanoes over 13000 feet in height. I will take you for a walk out on that lava flow and it also has a nice short hike for those that would like to hike up the cinder hill.
