Visiting a Neighbor: Pu’ukohola Heiau National Park

May 10, 2010

Last Saturday, I visited the Kohala coast’s Pu’ukohola National Historic Site with a group of Big Island Internet Society members.

The park is one of those nearby by places that I often forget is so special to this area that I am learning to call home.

You know how it is…you live near a place for years and think you know all there is to know about it, just because it’s so close by.

But, it has been a while since I’ve made that left turn and and spent a few hours at the Site.  I’m so glad I made the drive down.  Not only was I reminded of the rich history of this part of the Big Island, I also made a new friend.

Here are a few photos from the (somewhat overcast) afternoon:

Take a look at the blog The National Parks of the Pacific Islands too.  Lots of great photos and posts there!  (Leave a comment on one of their posts.  Let them know you visited the blog.  They need your support to show those who monitor such things that the blog is a good idea for the Parks.  It is.  As Ranger Greg reminded us Saturday, these are OUR parks, and it’s good for us to know what they’re up to!)
