Big Island Valleys

Completely surrounded by lush green mountains on three sides and a vast ocean behind me, standing in the valley of the Big Island truly separated me from the busy, outside world. It’s unclear how far back the valleys went and you can walk for hours and miles along the coastline ascending and descending the switchbacks of the rolling mountains. Locations like this on other islands may be filled with houses and development, but seeing the natural, untouched landscape was truly a treat and glimpse back into the past.
