Last time we were on the Big Island of Hawaii,
We were fortunate enough to visit the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel.
This hotel was founded by Laurance S. Rockefeller in 1965.
As we were walking the grounds,
We came upon this pathway.
We walked up to this view, and sat awhile breathing in the fresh salty air.
When we were ready, we kept following the pathway. . .
And I kept taking photos.
The above shot is one where I turned around to the pathway we had just walked down, to get a view of where we had been.
As we kept walking, the pathway wound around the lava rocks,
With exceptional views and no one around for miles.
I suppose I could have stayed there forever.
It was so peaceful and serene.
This was a couple of days after the Tsunami hit The Big Island, so as you can see, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel weathered it just fine.
In 1965, this was the most expensive hotel ever built in the world. If you would like to read more about the Mauna Kea, just click here.
