【E外桃源】Born of Fire, Born of the Sea

(2021-03-09 05:02:45) 下一个

Hawaii, a true paradise, is one of the "once in a lifetime" places to visit. The Big island is the largest and most volcanically active island in Hawaii. I had an incredible opportunity to travel there several years ago, and it was nothing short of wonderful. 

The Big Island contains so many different climate zones in the world, which range from tropical forest to subalpine prairie, from snowy deserts to sand beaches, and from lava tube to coastal dunes. This allowed me to feel that the whole day in Hawaii was truly breathtaking. I hiked in the tropical rainforest in the morning, and overlooked the sun and sandy beaches on the snowy mountain in the afternoon. The Big Island is really full of adventures. 

The most famous feature of the Big island is Volcanoes National Park, which encompasses the summits of two of the world's most active volcanoes. It is worth devoting a full day to exploring the volcanoes with continuing eruptions. Sometimes people are lucky enough to view lava from a very close distance, when it is flowing into the ocean. It is definitely one of the most unique and thrilling things to do in Hawaii.

According to travel guide books, lava viewing is a must-do activity on the Big island while one of those volcanoes is actively erupting. Hiking to the lava flow could be a bit dangerous, but adventure is worthwhile in itself. Even though there were no surface flows during my visit, only walking on the craters made me feel like I was walking on the surface of the moon. I completely have my mind blown by how crazy nature is!

真好!看看不同的风景,体验不同的文化风俗,实在是人生一大乐事。你说得对,应该挤出时间多出去旅游,活在当下,不负时光。:)
海边2018 回复 悄悄话 谢谢访问我的博客!确实去了不少地方,看了不少景色和不同文化。旅游让人见识更广阔生活更丰富。若真喜欢旅游,身体也好的话,或许不要“等以后有时间了”,而要抓紧时光挤出时间去旅游。世界风云总是变化莫测,岁月静好并不那么理所当然:)

看了一下你的博客,去过好多地方,非洲和南极都去过,赞啊。能去看一看远方的世界真好!环球旅游也一直是我的心愿,等以后有时间了,希望可以实现。
海边2018 回复 悄悄话 唉,遗失了影像记录也是很令人懊恼的事。不过看过就已是拥有了。
世界丰富多彩,要观看感受的东西太多了。许多地方去过后,总想着还要去,但似乎又不断被新事物给淹没了。

是啊,一场疫情打乱了所有人的生活计划。希望黎明快点到来,这样又可以去远方看一看了。
P.S.这些是网络照片,不是我拍的。在回程路上,我的相机不幸遗落在飞机上了。当时觉得好遗憾,不过以后有机会还会再去夏威夷的。
海边2018 回复 悄悄话 谢谢鼎力推荐!原本去年4月成行,机票租车旅馆都已订好。没料被一场突如其来的疫情所取消。很沮丧。希望明年能实现这一计划。只是不一定有运气能看到你所见的红火热气腾腾景观。
