Rainbow Falls is located in Hilo, Hawaii. It is 80 feet tall and almost 100 feet in diameter. The falls are part of the Hawaii State Parks. Known in the Hawaiian language as Waiānuenue (literally “rainbow water”), the falls flows over a natural lava cave, the mythological home to Hina, an a Hawaiian goddess.  At Rainbow Falls, the Wailuku River rushes into a large pool below. The gorge is blanketed by lush, dense tropical foliage and the turquoise colored pool is bordered by beautiful wild ginger. The falls are accessed at Wailuku River State Park on the Big Island of Hawaii.

28-MAR-13: Big Sur 1975

Turn on the “Way-Back” machine!  This picture is from a trip I took with my father to Big Sur in 1975.  We drove Highway 1, stayed in a log cabin, hiked the coast, and visited Esalen (http://www.esalen.org) and Nepenthe (http://www.nepenthebigsur.com).

Big Sur, California 1975 (copyright 2013 JoshWillTravel)

Big Sur is a sparsely populated region of the Central Coast of California where the Santa Lucia Mountains rise abruptly from the Pacific Ocean. The name “Big Sur” is derived from the original Spanish-language “el sur grande”, meaning “the big south”, or from “el país grande del sur”, “the big country of the south”, referring to its location south of the Monterey Peninsula. The terrain offers stunning views, making Big Sur a popular tourist destination. Cone Peak in Big Sur is the highest coastal mountain in the contiguous 48 states, ascending nearly a mile 5,155 feet above sea level, only three miles from the ocean.

In 1984, I backpacked the UC Santa Cruz reserve in Big Sur during my Field Quarter in the Sierras – UCSC extension/Sierra Institute program (watch for my next blog).  We day-hiked to the top of Cone Peak from our base camp and were buzzed by F-14 jet fighters from Moffett Feld and then we watched from high above as Blue Whales swam by during their Spring migration!
