  • Devastation and beauty and the only way to describe it. Make sure you visit the "Kingdom of Hawaii" for some great food, wonderful people, and lovely local art. The best part of Kalapana though has go...  more »
  • The nearly 2-year-old children. I leave the Memorial as a reference. Car up here to go to wherever the car at the end of the line 130, because lava Ocean entries, go 3.5 miles on foot or by bike. We thought, carrying a child in the stroller and walk 1.5 hours. ♦ This is because I chose walking because relief because the bike fun, climate cooler, just good for 1.5 hours of walking to withstand. Then piggyback passed during that year age # children with their families and had people walking, people rent mountain bikes, ATV (on the back of the bike like a passenger car attached pull), especially mountain bike buggy uphill in saw. ♦ time and way about planned one-way 1.5 hours. I arrived at 15: enjoy the 15:30 on toddlers 17:00 after Ocean entry looks Rocky. On the road, had walked stroller so you need the rock about 10 minutes walk. The other is a gravel road, but gentleman on stroller (buggy bath-air tires are) without problems. 18:20 go way back, to walk down the dark road, 8 pm went back to the parking lot in front. ♦ When we went on the lava Ocean entries a lot better saw. Sitting on a rock and watch about an hour. I can wait to eat snacks while darkening arrives in the early hours on the Rocky pools. There were people toasted with beer. ♦ dress and what it takes to walk toward the sunset kid towel be repellant and sunscreen and an easy and good I think. Adults also have sunglasses and lovely. On the way back to sunset and dark, cold. So, to avoid conflict from the jacket (trainer in as good as you think) and mountain biking a flashlight (light back to a previous) two. Families with young children was also was worried, so I had no information about the take. It was also okay if you have a rental car, without taking part in the tour. If I took small baby with foreign visitors who were pregnant women. I thought not stickes out even the volcanic rock of the last problem.
