We arrived at the Big Island about 7:00PM from Oahu and by the time we got out of the airport, loaded our car and drove to where we were staying, it was already almost completely dark. We got a tiny glimpse of the orange glow of Kilauea but we didn’t venture out that first night.

Kilauea Military Camp

Situated within the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Kilauea Military Camp was the perfect place for us to stay as the goal for this leg was to visit the said National Park. It has all the amenities that we needed and the grounds were so perfect for our very active little toddler.


We only had three short days here so we crammed as much as we can in those precious moments. 🙂 Here are some of the photos (in dry, wet and ocean order :D) that I managed to take as it was raining (misting from the clouds) most of the time we were there so the camera stayed in the bag. 😉 😉

Places we visited: Thomas A. Jaggar Museum, Halemaumau Crater, Nahuku (Thurston Lava Tube), Akaka Falls, Chain of Craters Road and a beach close to the airport (didn’t take note of the name and cannot find it in the map… hahaha)

Volcanoes National Park – Stars and Halema‘uma‘u…

Anyway, I don’t have much words for now but all I know is that we will one day go back as we tapped only about 1-2% of what’s in that big, beautiful, diverse island.

Much love,

Joyce DZ
