Northwest Region, Big Island of Hawaii Photos

Just inland from the Kona Coast sits the Parker Ranch, the largest in the USA, centered at the town of Kamuela, which also has a family-run museum & some heritage buildings. Further north are archeological ruins like Pu'ukohuta Heiau National Historic Site & Lapakahi State Historical Park. Some of the valley's on the north coast are so rugged they can only be seen from the air or one-like Waipio Valley where descent is only for experts in 4WD vehicles.
