Arriving in Hilo, Hawaii on day six, we were pleasantly surprised to realize that there was room for our massive cruise ship to dock (tendering back and forth eats up a lot of exploring time).

On this day, we rented another vehicle (a car this time) and set out to see Rainbow Falls, Hilo Farmer’s Market (one of the state’s largest with over 200 vendors), and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Unfortunately, on our visit to Volcanoes, Crater Rim Drive was closed south of the Jaggar Museum due to toxic fumes, so we were not able to complete the drive around the Kilauea Caldera like I had hoped. Also, it started raining, which prevented us from exploring Desolation Trail. In any case, the Park is a beautiful and humbling place to observe Mother Nature at her fiercest.
