View over Kona Coast - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
I was not alone in admiring the panoramic view over Kailua-Kona from this viewpoint. Though the car park was fairly empty, it was obvious that at times this place could be quite busy. The view over the bay was lovely, with geckos running about the rocks nearby. Quite often this part of Hawaii quickly become overcast as winds drive moist air over the peak of Mauna Loa, though when I took this panorama, as you can see, the skies were clear.
