Kona-Kohala Sunsets

Yes, we're traveling again. This time to the Kona-Kohala coast on the western side of the Big Island of Hawaii. This is the first to visit the Big Island for both Mark and me.

Some time ago, we were invited to accompany some friends of ours to spend a little over a week at a resort villa owned by some friends of theirs. Free. Well, we had to pay for the airfare, but our lodging is free. This first post features pictures of the sunsets the past two nights. These first four pictures were taken on Monday night. The lead photo and the others were taken last night.

Water condensation from our drinks. We don't experience condensation in Utah.

I went to get something from our room, which faces east, from the lanai, which faces west, and I saw the above scene out of our window to the northeast. The setting sun had set the top of Kohala* ablaze over the mists that shrouded the slopes. It was pretty amazing.

*According to our guide book, Kohala is the oldest surviving Big Island volcano which last erupted 60,000 years ago.
