Hualalai Sunset... Wanting Memories.

    Newer Older

    On the high road road to Kona from Waimea on the Big Isle near Puu Waawaa, acres and acres of dried lava beds from active flows from Mauna Loa in the 1800s stretch for miles across the slopes of Hualalai out to the sea. From this spot at around 2500' (760 m) high, the setting sun conducts its symphony of lights with an orchestra of clouds.

    Click on the "map" below and to the right in "Additional Information" to see where it was taken. Be sure to click on "hybrid" or "satellite" to see the lava beds.

    I can't think of a better soundtrack for this image than "Wanting Memories." In the '90s, you couldn't turn on a radio in Hawaii without hearing this song by Keali'i Reichel (written by Dr. Ysaye Barnwell from the African-American all-female a cappella group 'Sweet Honey On The Rocks.")
